Overview

Clyde "The Glide" Drexler was a standout player during his career and one of the most versatile players of the era, but he could not make the transition to hobby superstar.

Clyde Drexler first emerged on the main basketball stage as a member of Phi Slamma Jama. The nickname was applied to the members of the University of Houston basketball team. Headlined by Drexler and Hakeem Olajuwon, Phi Slamma Jama brought a new dunk-heavy style of play to the masses, along with several successful NCAA tournament runs. Following his junior season, Clyde Drexler declared for the 1983 NBA Draft, and was selected 14th overall by the Portland Trail Blazers.

Clyde Drexler spent the majority of his NBA career with Portland, but was traded to Houston near the end of his career. He finally claimed his only NBA title during the 1994-95 season, when he was reunited with his college teammate, Hakeem Olajuwon, on the Houston Rockets. Drexler finished with 10 All-Star appearances, a gold medal with the original Dream Team in 1992, and he was voted as a member of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History. Clyde Drexler was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2004.

"The Glide" is a frequent signer and his autographed cards been included in recent Leaf, Upper Deck and Panini products. Although he only has one rookie card, his Star card predates his official rookie by several years and remains a popular option.

Clyde Drexler Key Signature Attributes: An authentic Clyde Drexler signature autograph will exhibit several distinguishing characteristics, depending on when in his career the item was signed. Other characteristics that play into his signature style are the particular item and venue. Look for the following signature features:

  1. The signature begins with a large "C" that has a exaggerated lip at the top of the letter.
  2. Next comes the clear cursive "l-y", but the "y" resembles a printed letter.
  3. The pen lifts and a cursive "d-e" ends the first name.
  4. The last name starts with a large "D" featuring a swooping finish at the bottom.
  5. From there, the signature ends in one motion, "r-e-x-l-e-r".
  6. The last "r" tends to be a little sloppy and appears to be more of an extension of the "e".
