2010 New Hampshire Fisher Cats Bubbie Buzachero
Who is this? New Hampshire Fisher Cats pitcher Edward Dale "Bubbie" Buzachero
What is this? An autographed card from the 2010 New Hampshire Fisher Cats team set
Where'd I get it? Buzachero signed it for me after a game in Trenton earlier this year.
How much did it cost? The team set was around $10-$12, but I don't recall the exact figure.
Why is this so special? "Bubbie Buzachero" is a great baseball name. And check out those tattoos on Buzachero's left arm. It would be so much fun if he made it to the major leagues.
Unfortunately, that's not likely to happen. Buzachero turned 29 this June, and he spent most of the season in AA. He worked out of the bullpen, where he had an 8-1 record, but his ERA was 6.17 and his WHIP was 1.543.
Buzachero has greatly simplified his name for his autograph, but his initials are clearly readable.
Here is his card from the 2008 Akron Aeros set. I also got it signed in Trenton earlier this year.
