Leather Basketball Shoes Were Yao Ming's First Motivation

LAS VEGAS, April 3 /Xinhua-PRNewswire/ -- The latest issue of Legends Sports Magazine towers over the competition with its feature story on the NBA's tallest player, the Houston Rocket's Yao Ming.

Standing 7 feet 6 inches tall, Yao has become a star in the United States on the basketball court with a consistent scoring record and off, thanks to his good humor and personality. Legends Sports' profile touches on these and other aspects of his fascinating life, tracing his path from his humble origins in China when all he desired was a good pair of shoes through his move to the U.S. and his current success.

Award-winning Legends Sports is equally successful, offering fans and collectors ultra-high quality, limited-edition magazines with inserts of sports cards bordered with 24-karat gold foil. As well as the highly prized cards, each issue includes in-depth profiles, lively features, and some of the best sports artwork around.

Ed Shin, the magazine's new owner, has been a fan of Legends Sports since its start in 1988. "I loved reading Legends Sports as a kid," says Ed. "I'd look forward to each new issue, both as a sports fan and as a card collector. I never thought I'd be in a position to buy my favorite publication, and now I can't wait to help take it to the next level."

Packed with great articles on classic sports moments, legendary pictures and photos of the world's top athletes, and information on back issues, Legend Sports is every collector's dream. Each magazine is a limited-edition issue, with no back issues ever reproduced, and some copies have escalated 200% in value.
