2000 Team Best Rookies Autographs B.J. Ryan
Who is this? former Baltimore Orioles reliever B.J. Ryan
What is this? An autographed card from the 2000 Team Best set
Where'd I get it? Card show purchase
How much did it cost? This is one of 7 autographed cards I bought for $5 over the weekend.
Why is this so special? B.J. Ryan appeared in 560 major league games over 11 seasons and he was a two-time All-Star. Ryan's best season was 2006, when he saved 38 games for the Blue Jays and finished the year with a 1.37 ERA.
Ryan had a really tiny autograph when he signed this card. I like how he has the tail on the "y" in his last name underline the rest of his signature.
