NBA free agents aren’t all Kevin McHale has been signing lately.
Former Celtics great Kevin McHale has signed his first autograph agreement with a trading card company. Donruss recently completed the signing and his first certified autograph cards will appear in the company’s latest release, Donruss Americana Sports Legends.
McHale will appear in the base commons as a member of the University of Minnesota, where he still ranks second in career points scored. He will also appear on two combos cards in the launch, being paired with teammate Larry Bird in the Signature Connection Combos and Bird and Robert Parish in the Signature Connection Triples.
McHale, who was enshrined the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1999, helped the Celtics win three NBA titles, in 1981, ’84 and ’86. A seven-time All-Star, he was named one of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA history in 1996.
McHale ranks ninth in NBA history with a .554 career field goal percentage. And in 1986-87, he became the first player in league lore to shoot .600 from the floor and .800 from the charity stripe in the same season. Of course, he was also a member of the famed "Big Three" frontcourt along with Larry Bird and Robert Parish.
McHale has served as Minnesota Timberwolves Vice President of Basketball Operations since 1995.
