Who is this? Newark Bears infielder Scott Spiezio
What is this? An autographed card from Upper Deck's 2004 Team USA 25th Anniversary set
Where'd I get it? Spiezio signed it for me before a Newark Bears game earlier this year.
How much did it cost? I traded a duplicate card with another autograph collector at the ballpark
Why is this so special? Scott Spiezio spent 12 seasons in the major leagues and won two World Series rings, with the 2002 Angels and the 2006 Cardinals. He is the son of former major leaguer Ed Spiezio.
I've never seen another picture of Spiezio without his silly beard, so this card amuses me. Although it smeared a little, Spiezio's signature here looks a lot nicer than the one on the card I posted yesterday.
