2009 Binghamton Mets D.J. Wabick

Who is this? Binghamton Mets outfielder D.J. Wabick

What is this? An autographed card from the 2009 Binghamton Mets team set

Where'd I get it? Wabick signed it for me before a game between the B-Mets and Thunder in Trenton earlier this month

How much did it cost? I got the team set for $10 or less

Why is this so special? Despite being a 25th round draft pick, Wabick has fought his way up the ladder in the Mets' system. Last year, he was selected to the Eastern League All-Star team even though he doesn't really seem to have the power you normally look for from your outfielders.

I'm tempted to point out that Wabick's autograph isn't very legible... but it looks great compared to some I got today from members of the New Hampshire Fisher Cats.

Don't forget... if you want to enter the Auto-Matic for the People autograph giveaway contest, you've got less than 24 hours to do it. All entries must be timestamped before 7 p.m. EDT on Monday, June 28.
