Who is this? minor league catcher Jonathan Jaspe What is this? An autographed card from the 2010 New Hampshire Fisher Cards set Where'd I get it? Jaspe signed it for me before a Trenton Thunder game last year. How much did it cost? I believe the team set cost around $10
Why is this so special? Jaspe, a Venezuelan native, has played in the Blue Jays system since 2005. Last season, at the age of 25, he hit .238 /.285 / .354 with 1 home run in 61 games for the AA Fisher Cats. It would be a surprise if Jaspe improved enough to get a shot in the major leagues, but he's already accomplished more as a pro baseball player than 99.9 percent of the population.
I got the card signed with a silver Sharpie that was on its way out, but it came out better than it probably would have if Jaspe had signed in blue.
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.
