Who is this? Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Collin Cowgill What is this? A signed 2010 Topps Pro Debut card Where'd I get it? I wrote to Cowgill at the beginning of July and asked him to sign it; I got it back on Monday. How much did it cost? I got the card out of a box that cost approximately $30 last winter
Why is this so special? Cowgill came to my attention for his somewhat unusual name. When I looked him up online, I saw that he was having a great year for Reno in the Pacific Coast League. He hit for the cycle in June, and was batting .354 with 13 home runs and 70 RBI in 98 Triple A games when the Diamondbacks called him up.
Last night, he made his big league debut and went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts. Hopefully he has better days ahead of him.
Cowgill has a loopy signature, and not much is readable beyond his initials. The silver pen was an interesting choice. Still, I'm happy to have this autograph in my collection.
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.
