Who is this? Baltimore Orioles Hall of Fame manager Earl Weaver What is this? A 2004 Topps Retired Signature Autographs card Where'd I get it? I won it in a contest run by Ryan of the Great Orioles Autograph Project How much did it cost? It was free
Why is this so special? This is the nicest sports card prize I've ever won, and one of a relatively small number of cards signed by Hall of Famers in my collection.
Weaver spent his entire 17-year managerial career with the Orioles. His Baltimore teams won four pennants and one World Series title. His overall record was 1480-1060, a .583 winning percentage.
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.
