1980 Topps Bruce Sutter
Who is this? Hall of Fame pitcher Bruce Sutter.
What is this? An autographed 1980 Topps card, number 17.
Where'd I get it? A card show in the late 80s.
How much did it cost? Two dollars.
Why is this so special? This is one of my first autographed cards, I got it from a dealer at a card show when I was a teenager. He had a binder full of autographed cards and was selling them for two bucks each. I picked Sutter because he had played for the Braves (albeit not very well). Now he's in the Hall of Fame, imagine that? The autograph on the card is remarkably like Sutter's actual signature.
