2010 Upper Deck Luke Gregerson
Who is this? San Diego Padres reliever Luke Gregerson
What is this? A signed 2010 Upper Deck baseball card
Where'd I get it? I wrote to Gregerson this spring and asked him to sign it.
How much did it cost? I got the card out of a pack last year.
Why is this so special? Gregerson is a hard-throwing right-hander who averages 10.7 strikeouts per nine innings during his major league career. He was selected in the 28th round of the 2006 draft by the St. Louis Cardinals, but was traded to San Diego in 2009 in exchange for Khalil Greene. He made his major league debut later that year for the Padres.
Gregerson has a great looking autograph, especially for a modern player.
