Basketball TTM newbie. Suggestions
I've decided to take on the TTM hobby. The problem is that I am a fan of the players from the 80s and 90s who are no longer in the league. I've not found many addresses easily on the internet, besides mailing to their former teams.

There are a handful of websites that claim to have addresses, but I don't know if they are legit, and most require a payment or membership. Before I dish out cash, I was wondering if any one particular site is better than others? Particularly for HOF basketball players.

I've had one TTM success already, of a former college coach, which has me excited and craving more!

Completed sets:
91-92 USA: Hoops, Skybox, Impel
91-92 UD Award Winner Holograms
92-93 Topps Beam Team, TSC Beam Team, Ultra (all inserts)
93-94 TSC Beam Team, Ultra (Famous Nicknames, Inside/Outside, Rebound Kings)

Only way i can think of is to try through the NBA itself. I know there are quite a few former players on team staff lists, so that would be a start. Ewing is the Assistant Coach at Orlando, Detlef Schrempf is on the recruiting staff for portland i believe, Avery Johnson Head Coach at Brooklyn....



Collect Patrick Ewing, Jalen Rose, Kevin Garnett, LaMarcus Aldridge, Jeff Green

if you have less than 25 trades, I will ask you to send first.

Patrick Ewing is no longer on the Orlando Magic coaching staff. He is currently focusing on his shoe brand right now.

Jchavez, I wasn't aware of that. Folkert, that makes sense with Schrempf, I believe his degree was in finance or business management. either way, OP, you're best bet would be to find out which former NBA players are on team staff and approach them via the teams then go from there.
