Jeremy Giambi, Topps Heritage 2003.

Who is this? Jeremy Giambi, younger brother of Jason.

What is this? A 2003 Topps Heritage card.

Where'd I get it? Through the mail.

How much did it cost? Postage plus a few cents for the card.

Why is this so special? It made us wonder why if you're going to bother signing a card you would kind of deface your own photograph. We suspect that we mailed this a long time ago, before knowing much, including that Mr. Giambi got in trouble a while ago for use of marijuana and also steroids. Still, he was nice enough to sign the card and bother returning it. Still again, he signed it across his own face, thus obscuring the smile that probably led us to mail it in the first place. Sometimes, life is complicated.

My first impression was that someone artistically vandalized the card, leaving a prominent mustache in thick black Sharpie.

It does appear that Mr. Giambi has a prominent horseshoe mustache which would feel right at home on Heartbreaking Cards
