2010 Bowman Sterling Prospect Autographs #DD Delino DeShields
Who is this? Houston Astros prospect Delino Diaab DeShields
What is this? An autographed card from the 2010 Bowman Sterling set
Where'd I get it? A card show dealer
How much did it cost? $5
Why is this so special? Any time you can get an autographed card that you're interested in for a fraction of the cost of the pack that it came out of, it's a good deal.
DeShields is the son of 1990s Expos & Dodgers second baseman Delino Lamont DeShields. The younger DeShields was the 8th overall pick in the draft last year. He spent his first pro season in the Appalachian League with the Greenville Astros. In 16 games, he went 21-for-67 with a triple, six doubles and five stolen bases.
Last month, DeShields was arrested on a DUI charge. Hopefully he will exercise better judgment in the future.
It's interesting to see how different DeShields' autograph is from his father's.
