Ricky Berry Autograph

7

Apology in advance if this is the wrong spot to post this, but I just thought I'd share this find. From my Tumblr: Ricky Alan Berry - Drafted by @SacramentoKings in 1988 - Committed suicide 8/14/89. Parents took me to meet him and get the autograph you see here. While digging through boxes for old pictures for a project I’m working on, I stumbled upon this gem. An old bumper sticker signed by Ricky Berry himself. For those who don’t know, Ricky was drafted 18th overall in the 1988 NBA Draft. After a promising rookie season, Ricky was found dead by a self inflicting gunshot. After searching online, not much else has been said about the young Kings player. Just thought it was a bitter sweet piece of Kings memorabilia I would share.
