Default NBA Finals: Charles Barkley

Was finally able to meet Sir Charles since the Finals are being held here in San Antonio. Great guy signed a card for me that i thought would look great with his signature.

Man how lucky you are! I have heard several times that Charles Barkley normally wouldn't sign anything with his face on it for fans.

I met him in the airport once, he was totally approachable and a great guy! I am also surprised he signed a card, lucky you!

Met Chuck years ago when I was around 15 - he signed everything I threw his way, including giving me his GU shoes...couldn't have been nicer (his first pair from Nike as a Sun). Glad to see OP had a great experience as well, and a cool card to boot.

I've yet to hear or read a bad story about meeting Charles. I've heard so many great things about the way he treats his fans and always accommodating autographs. Great to read another quality example.
