2010 Trenton Thunder Daniel Brewer
Who is this? Trenton Thunder outfielder Daniel Brewer
What is this? An autographed card from the 2010 Trenton Thunder team set
Where'd I get it? Before a Trenton Thunder game this summer.
How much did it cost? The team set was $10.
Why is this so special? The Yankees selected Brewer in the 8th round of the 2008 draft, and he's been steadily moving through the farm system. In 136 games with Trenton this year, he batted .270 /.346 /.407 with 10 home runs and 84 RBI while stealing 29 bases.
I don't particularly remember getting this autograph. The day I tried to collect signatures from Trenton Thunder players, I was starting to get sick and I probably had a low-grade fever by the time we left the ballpark. If it weren't for my friends identifying the Thunder players as they came out on the field or out of the stadium after the game, I wouldn't have gotten any cards signed that day. (Of course, if I had been on my own, I probably would have been smart enough to stay home. :) )
Brewer's autograph is pretty much just a scribbled "DB 8"
