Who is this? Toronto Blue Jays minor league infielder Jonathan Diaz What is this? An autographed card from the 2010 New Hampshire Fisher Cats team set Where'd I get it? Diaz signed it for me at a Trenton Thunder game last year How much did it cost? The team set cost around $10, if I remember correctly.
Why is this so special? Diaz is wearing a pink jersey, which was undoubtedly from a Mother's Day/breast cancer awareness game. He's probably not thrilled at the choice of photos used for his baseball card, but at least it's a cool action shot.
Diaz was selected in the 12th round of the 2006 draft. He split last season between AA New Hampshire and AAA Las Vegas, hitting a combined .239 / .348 / .315 with two home runs and five stolen bases in seven attempts. Diaz turns 26 this April, so time is running out for him to show that he deserves a chance in the majors.
Diaz has an interesting signature, though I'm glad I don't have to decipher it.
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.
