Who is this? Florida Marlins first baseman Gaby Sanchez What is this? An autographed 2011 Topps card Where'd I get it? I wrote to Sanchez at the Marlins spring training camp and asked him to sign it How much did it cost? I got the unsigned card out of a pack.
Why is this so special? Sanchez hit .273 with 19 home runs and 85 RBI as a rookie for the Florida Marlins last season. He finished fourth in the National League Rookie of the Year voting, behind Buster Posey, Jason Heyward and Jaime Garcia, but ahead of Starlin Castro and Ike Davis.
His autograph is a bit tough to make out since he signed in black on a mostly dark background, but he did personalize the card to me.
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.
