Who is this? Seattle Mariners pitcher Doug Fister What is this? An autographed card from the 2009 Tacoma Rainiers team set Where'd I get it? I wrote to Fister this spring and asked him to sign it. I got it back a week & a half later. How much did it cost? Just postage.
Why is this so special? After a 3-4 rookie season, Fister spent most of the 2010 season in Seattle's starting rotation. He finished the year with a 6-14 record, but he didn't really pitch that badly - he had an ERA of 4.11 and walked just 32 in 171 innings. He should be part of Seattle's rotation again in 2011.
Fister has a unique signature - I've never seen a capital "F" quite like that.
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.
