Who is this? Bridgeport Bluefish utility player Hiram Bocachica What is this? An autographed card from the 2003 Topps Total set Where'd I get it? Bocachica signed it for me at a Newark Bears game last year. How much did it cost? I got the card out of a pack in 2003
Why is this so special? This was one of the last baseball cards I got signed in person in 2010.
Bocachica has been playing professional baseball since 1994. He spent parts of 8 seasons in the major leagues and two more in Japan. In 2008, Bocachica hit 20 home runs for the Saitama Seibu Lions and helped them to win the Japan Series.
Last year, he split the season between Bridgeport in the Atlantic League and the Broncos de Reynosa in Mexico. For the Bluefish, he batted .282 with 8 home runs and 32 RBI in 69 games.
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.
