Who is this? Bridgeport Bluefish outfielder Danny Putnam What is this? An autographed card from the 2007 Topps 1952 Rookies set Where'd I get it? I got it signed after a game between the Bluefish and the Bears in Newark earlier this year. How much did it cost? 25-50 cents Why is this so special? Putnam, a former California high school player of the year, was a first-round pick of the Oakland Athletics in 2004. He appeared in 11 major league games for them in 2007.
He currently plays for the Bridgeport Bluefish. In 43 games, Putnam is batting .200 with 2 home runs and 15 RBI. His autograph is remarkably legible for a current player. It hasn't changed much from the one Topps used when creating his card, though Putnam signed "Danny" instead of "Daniel."
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.
