Who is this? Milwaukee Brewers centerfielder Jim Edmonds.
What is this? An autograph card from the 2003 SP Chirography set.
Where'd I get it? I bought it off eBay a few months ago.
How much did it cost? I don't remember exactly how much it cost, but I remember it being fairly cheap, maybe around $3 plus shipping.
Why is this so special? Jim Edmonds has always been one of my favorite players, simply because he is such an amazing outfielder. So far he has won 8 Gold Gloves in his 16 year career, and he has been know for making some of the most amazing catches in baseball history. The one that most people remember was the one he made while playing for Anaheim against the Royals on June 10, 1997 to rob a sure double.
Edmonds is hitting .280 with 3 homers in 27 games this season for the Brewers, which isn't bad for a guy who didn't even know if he'd be playing this season.
Edmonds has a very nice and distinctive auto. He has an interesting way of making the d's in his last name, but I really like his signature.
