A Tight 45 with Tabari McCoy - Episode 079 – Scott Smith, the "SI King"
Manage episode 341819772 series 2797541
Like many kids in America, Scott Smith grew up loving sports. Then, his grandmother gifted him a subscription to Sports Illustrated - and his life was forever changed.
For while she may not have known it at the time, she had just laid the seed to create the man who would grow up to simply be known as "the SI King."
Smith is the curator of the "SI King Collection," the 20,000+ autographed issues of Sports Illustrated in his home (yes, Tabari knows where, but he's not telling in case any of you have criminal leanings)! Smith has traveled the world working on his collection over the past 40 years, meeting countless athletes, politicians and celebrities along the way.
On this episode (out on all major platforms on Wednesday, Sept. 22, 2022), Scott chats with Tabari about the origins of his collections, who has been the nicer athletes he's met over his collecting career, the highs and lows of collecting ... And the one or two signatures he'd be willing to drop thousands of dollars on to add to his collection. (If you have it, you'd gonna want to holler at him!)
