Who is this? Mets third base coach Chip Hale What is this? An autographed card from the 1996 Leaf Signature Series set Where'd I get it? Purchased from CheckOutMyCards.com How much did it cost? 99 cents
Why is this so special? Chip Hale is the Mets third base coach and was a finalist to become their manager after Jerry Manuel was let go at the end of the season.
Between 1989-1997, Hale played in the major leagues for 7 seasons with the Minnesota Twins and Los Angeles Dodgers. He was never a regular, but he served a useful utility role. He retired with a .277 career average, 7 home runs and 76 RBI.
Hale's autograph is fairly legible, but I'd read it as "Chip Dale" if I didn't know better.
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.
