2003 Upper Deck Yankee Signature Series Bobby Cox

Who is this? Yankee third baseman Bobby Cox, the Pride of New York.

What is this? An autograph card from 2003 Upper Deck Yankee Signature Series, card number PN-CX.

Where'd I get it? Online somewhere.

How much did it cost? It was a bargain at thrice the price.

Why is this so special? Why is this so special?? Are you serious???

2280 wins and counting.
15 Division championships.
5 Pennants.
1 world Series Championship.
8 time Sporting News Manager of the Year.
137 ejections without once acting like a complete baby.
Moved Dale Murphy to center field.
Traded for John Smoltz.
Drafted Chipper Jones.
Has been an sports icon in Atlanta longer than anyone except for maybe Hank Aaron and Furman Bisher.

Plus he was the starting third baseman for the 1968 New York Yankees, played alongside Mickey Mantle in his final season and was the 1968 Topps All-Rookie third baseman.

Why is this card special... why I oughta...
