2009 O-Pee-Chee Scott Baker
Who is this? Minnesota Twins pitcher Scott Baker
What is this? An autographed card from the 2009 O-Pee-Chee set
Where'd I get it? I wrote to Baker during spring training and asked him to sign it; I got it back earlier this month
How much did it cost? Around $1 for the card and postage
Why is this so special? Baker is the Minnesota Twins ace, yet even after a career-best 15-9 season he still took the time to sign autographs through the mail. Currently in his sixth season, Baker has a 47-37 career record with a 4.32 ERA.
Baker has a surprisingly nice signature for a modern player.
