2008 Topps Allen & Ginter Geovany Soto
Who is this? Cubs catcher Geovany Soto
What is this? An autographed card from the 2008 Topps Allen & Ginter set
Where'd I get it? I purchased it from Anthony of Mike Pelfrey Collectibles when he decided to sell off his collection.
Why is this so special? Soto was the National League Rookie of the Year and an All-Star in 2008, hitting .285 with 23 home runs and 86 RBI. After a disappointing sophomore season, he rebounded to hit .280 with 17 home runs and 53 RBI this year.
Soto does not have a pretty autograph, and I'm glad I don't have to decipher it on a baseball or other generic item.
