Special thanks to R. Pimpsner for letting me use his pictures for the homemade cards.
On second thought my favorite out of all of these is probably the 2013 Choice NYPL Top Prospects Eric Jagielo card. The very first official Jagielo card out there and I got it signed .

Finally, it got him to sign it at the show in Baltimore last year. It was in person and was certified at the show. I also, legally, snuck in the Zenith card to get signed for free . That is another story.

In the late 80s I worked (and still do) at the local NBC affiliate in Bangor, Maine and Yaz came up to do some tv commercials for the local Chrysler dealership. Our tv station handled the production and I got to work on the ads and in fact even did the voice on one of them. Technically I was in the same ad as Carl Yastrzemski although it was just my voice at the end. I met him and he signed some of my old cards for me. I should've had him sign some of my less valuable cards but didn't realize at the time that I was de-valuing them.
