Bay Area Golden State Warriors fan and collector Javier Gonzales spent several nervous months waiting for the return of a giant Steph Curry poster he had paid to have autographed.
“It looks like one of those street banners that hang on the lamp-post when the playoffs come,” Gonzales told KGO-TV.
The private signing was scheduled to happen through Steiner Sports last spring but had to be postponed–twice.
“I was excited and nervous because now it’s out of my possession,” Gonzales recalled.
He had confirmation the banner was delivered to Steiner and the autograph session finally happened in August but then came news that Fanatics had purchased the company and Gonzales was still waiting as summer came to a close. He was assured the signed poster would be on its way soon but when summer turned to fall and he still didn’t have it, he called Michael Finney, “7 On Your Side” consumer reporter for KGO-TV, the local ABC TV affiliate.
They called Fanatics and with a half hour, things began to happen…and it all turned out even better than expected.
