Who is this? Twins Outfielder Lew Ford.
What is this? An autograph card from 2006 Topps Allen & Ginter, card AGA-LF.
Where'd I get it? eBay.
How much did it cost? A couple bucks or so.
Why is this so special? I'm a big fan of Allen & Ginter cards and I wanted an auto card from the set for my collection. I got this one cheap sometime last year. The frame looks neat and I like the autograph logo on the back with the quill. It kinda looks like an original A&G header with the funky typeface. The autograph looks good even though it is squashed on the tiny card. Lew had a good year in 2004 and then fell of the face of the earth. The Twins released him this offseason and he will be playing in Japan in 2008.
