2009 Upper Deck Sweet Spot Jordan Zimmermann
Who is this? Washington Nationals pitcher Jordan Zimmerman
What is this? An autograph card from the 2009 Upper Deck Sweet Spot set
Where'd I get it? It was a card show purchase
How much did it cost? Around $5
Why is this so special? Jordan Zimmerman was a well-regarded prospect for the Washington Nationals. Last year, he won his first two major league starts -- the only pitcher in Washington Nationals history to that point to accomplish that feat. His second win came in a game against the New York Mets that I attended.
Zimmerman is currently recovering from Tommy John surgery.
Zimmerman has a reasonably legible signature, though he's eliminated a number of the letters from his name to make it easier to sign autographs.
