Who is this? Demetrius Heath, a former minor league second baseman and outfielder
What is this? An autograph card from the 2002 Topps Traded set
Where'd I get it? At a Somerset Patriots game in 2006
How much did it cost? The card was about a dime; the autograph was free.
Why is this so special?Demetrius Heath had the nickname "Meatball" during his days as a player with the now-defunct Atlantic City Surf, which is pretty cool. He stole 71 bases for the Surf in 2006, which was probably a team record and may even be the league mark -- unfortunately, there's no Atlantic League record book for me to check.
I'm not quite sure how Heath landed in the 2002 Topps Traded set, though. He was not a high-round draft pick and he never made it past A-ball. Nevertheless, he was a fun player to watch and he has a cool autograph.
I'm only putting autograph-related links in this blogroll. However, if you have a blog or a collector site not specifically about autographs, but with an autograph page or an "autograph" label on your blog posts, I'll put that link here.
