Who is this? Atlanta Braves reliever Jesse Chavez What is this? An autographed card from the 2009 Topps set Where'd I get it? I wrote to Chavez around Opening Day and asked him to sign it. I got it back last week. How much did it cost? Around $1 for the card and postage Why is this so special? Chavez had a decent rookie season for the Pittsburgh Pirates last year, though he did surrender an alarming 11 home runs in 67.1 innings. During the winter, he was traded twice. Pittsburgh sent him to Tampa Bay in the Akinori Iwamura trade, and the Rays dealt Chavez to Atlanta in the Rafael Soriano deal.
Chavez's signature is very scribbly, but I can make out the "J" and I think I see a "C."
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.
