2010 Bowman Eric Niesen
Who is this? Binghamton Mets pitcher Eric Niesen
What is this? An autographed card from the 2008 St. Lucie Mets team set
Where'd I get it? Niesen signed it for me after a game in Trenton earlier this year.
How much did it cost? A quarter
Why is this so special? Niesen, yet another Mets farmhand, was a third round draft selection in 2007. Although he's never put up eye-popping stats, Niesen has progressed steadily through the farm system. Until this year, he's worked exclusively as a starting pitcher.
Fortunately for us all, this is the final Eric Niesen autograph I have to post. Unfortunately, it's the ugliest of the three because the signature bubbled a bit.
