Card: Sage 2011
Acquired: 2017, Walmart Autographed Memorabilia
Charlie played TE for Michigan State from 2008 to 2010. He finished his tenure with 65 receptions for 951 yards and 9 TDs. Gantt’s crowning moment came in 2010 against Notre Dame when he caught a fake field goal for a TD to beat the Irish- a play in which many have called the ‘Play of the Year’. Although he earned Honorable Mention accolades from both SI and the Big 10, and was a solid blocker who could be relied upon to release downfield for a nice catch or two each game, Gantt was not selected in the 2011 NFL draft. He’d sign with the Kansas City Chiefs, but was released in final cut downs.
Frankly it’s a terribly uninspired card of Charlie. I’m happy to have the autograph, but everything is dressed up behind Charlie to make him look more exciting.
