I'm always baffled that listers like this guy can't even put "this is the founder of Basketball" on his auction!

Anyway...

Upper Deck produced a beauty of a card and produced five of these 2006/07 Chronology Cut Signatures of James Naismith (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=140186271113). You can read his Wikipedia page here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Naismith). Here also invented the football helmet!

I own the other five, lol...

Quite an imaginative guy he was, although I can't imagine what basketball would be like if it still followed those original rules. No running? What fun is that? It's like water polo on dry land.
