2009 Topps Attax J.J. Hardy
Who is this? J.J. Hardy, former Milwaukee Brewers shortstop
What is this? An autographed card from the 2009 Topps Attax set
Where'd I get it? I wrote to Hardy and asked him to sign it last April. I got it back today.
How much did it cost? Around a dollar for the card plus postage
Why is this so special? J.J. Hardy was an All-Star in 2007, hitting .277 with 26 home runs and 80 RBI. In 2008, he had another good year, hitting .283 with 24 home runs and 74 RBI.
Last year, Hardy had a terrible season and he was traded to Minnesota during the offseason. Hopefully he can turn things around and be a productive player for the Twins.
J.J. Hardy has something funky going on with his autograph. The "ardy" part is easy enough to read, but the first part almost looks like he's trying to use two "J"s to make one funky "H"
