2000 Topps Traded Autographs Elvin Nina
Who is this? Elvin Nina, a former pitcher who enjoyed a 10-year professional career
What is this? An autographed card from the 2000 Topps Traded Autographs insert set
Where'd I get it? I bought at a local baseball card show this weekend.
How much did it cost? $1
Why is this so special? Though Elvin Nina played professionally for 10 years, he never reached the major leagues. But he did go to high school a couple of towns over from where I grew up, and I got to see him play professionally in his final season with the Atlantic League's Road Warriors.
He has a nice, clear autograph. I wish more players took the same pride in their signature.
