Topps Heritage 2007, Mark McLemore.

Who is this? Pitcher...Mark McLemore.

What is this? An autograph card from 2007 Topps Heritage, based on 1952 Topps.

Where'd I get it? Big box store. Little blaster box.

How much did it cost? Fraction of blaster. AKA 'FraBla.'

Why is this so special? Mr. McLemore made his big league debut by pitching one inning of relief against the Diamondbacks. Period. He is wandering in free agent purgatory right now. But the combination of this card's design, its background celebrating flora, the sharp photography, and that sweet signature make this a pleasing card no matter who he is playing for now. Number 52S-MM has that classic card aesthetic.

nice looking card and signature.

it looks like he dotted an 'i' in his signature, but there is no 'i' in team, or 'mclemore'.
