2008 Donruss Elite Extra Edition Kirk Nieuwenhuis
Who is this? Binghamton Mets outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis
What is this? the 2008 Donurss Elite Extra Edition set
Where'd I get it? Nieuwenhuis signed it for me after a game in Trenton earlier this year.
How much did it cost? Fifty cents?
Why is this so special? Nieuwenhuis was the Mets third round pick in the 2008 draft and he's having a decent season in Binghamton so far. Through 86 games, he's hitting .298 with 16 home runs and 58 RBI. Nieuwenhuis sat out both games I went to this year, so I never got to see him play in person.
His autograph looks a bit like a seismograph, doesn't it?
