2003 Topps205 Second Series Luis Castillo
Who is this? Marlins second baseman Luis Castillo.
What is this? An autograph card from 2003 Topps205 Second Series, card TA-LC.
Where'd I get it? Not sure, actually. The local flea market perhaps.
How much did it cost? Probably not much.
Why is this so special? Castillo is a former all-star second baseman, although his production has declined in recent years. This card is notable for a complete disaster of an autograph from a player who normally has a very nice one. Mini cards can be hard to sign, but this is ridiculous. Castillo recently signed a 4 year contract with the Mets and will most likely be their opening day starter at second base.
