What is this? An autographed card from the 2008 St. Lucie Mets team set
Where'd I get it? Frederick signed it for me before a game in Trenton when he was playing for the Binghamton Mets earlier this year.
How much did it cost? I spent around $10 for the team set.
Why is this so special? Frederick appears to have been an undrafted free agent when he joined the Mets organization in 2007 at the age of 23. Aside from an impressive K/BB ratio in 2008, nothing really jumps out in his stat line. So I guess it shouldn't be a huge shock that Frederick got caught up in a numbers situation and was released last month, but I didn't realize it had happened until I went looking up his stats for this post.
I'm only putting autograph-related links in this blogroll. However, if you have a blog or a collector site not specifically about autographs, but with an autograph page or an "autograph" label on your blog posts, I'll put that link here.
