2008 TriStar Projections Richie Robnett
Who is this? Camden Riversharks outfielder Richie Robnett
What is this? An autographed card the 2008 TriStar Projections set
Where'd I get it? Robnett signed it for me before a game in Newark earlier this year.
How much did it cost? The card came out of a clearance blaster.
Why is this so special? Robnett was a first round draft pick by the Oakland Athletics in 2004, and was once regarded as a top prospect in Oakland's farm system. Through 2008, Robnett remained with Oakland, but last year he spent time in the Chicago Cubs and New York Yankees organizations.
In 2010, he's playing independent baseball for the Camden Riversharks, where he's hitting .273 with 6 home runs and 38 RBI through 87 games.
Robnett has an interesting, stylized autograph.
