Hey guys I would like to tell you why I collect Ryan Gomes. I live in Rhode Island and my house is 20 minutes from Providence College and 15 minutes from the Dunkin' Donuts Center where the basketball team plays their home games. My dad took me to my first PC game when I was 7 in 2001. That was Ryan Gomes freshman year. From the first game I saw not only did I become a DIEHARD PC fan but Ryan became my favorite player by far. I used to get so excited to go to the games just to see him play and since then I've loved to watch him. As I'm sure many of you don't know he is PC's all time leading scorer (2,138 points). Then in the 2005 NBA Draft my dreams came true. He was drafted by the Celtics (My favorite NBA team). He played 2 years in Boston before being traded in the KG Deal (I was heartbroken). I always say If I could have anyone from that trade back it would be him not Al Jefferson. Anyway, This summer I was doing college tours including PC. From the second I arrived on Campus i fell in love with it. If I get accepted (which I should) I will be attending PC in the fall of 2012. That was when I decided to super collect him finally. I've only been doing it for 6 weeks but I'm very proud of my collection and I don't care if I'm ever broke and need money very badly these cards will never leave my possession because of the sentimental value.

I'm loving collecting Gomes Right now! It makes it even more awesome that he is inexpensive. But he is a role model to me so its worth a lot more.
