Hey guys, Drew back here! It's been a really nice week in New York weather wise, so I haven't really been around to post much, as we've had baseball practice every day. There is no better feeling than knowing that the MLB season is just days away, and I'm excited as ever to see how the Yankees put it together in the 2012 season. That being said, I've picked up a few cards recently to celebrate Spring Training soon coming to an end, and the first of a player who created an awful lot of buzz in the offseason.
Out of 2003 Topps, here is a "Signature Moves" autograph of former Mets and now current Miami Marlins shortstop Jose Reyes! For a while I really was never a fan of Reyes, because he seemed overrated due to his lack of games played. However, I realized that granted he stays healthy for at least 130 games in this upcoming year, in a lineup as dominant as his Marlins team is, he could really have a career year. He's still young, agile, and filled with the skills needed for a gold glove shortstop, so anything could happen.
Recently, I've started to notice that the early-2000's Topps autographs are actually quite nice. Some of the cards don't have the flair that new products have, but they serve their purpose as a Certified Autograph Card and have a really clean look to them. Nothing better than a rookie autograph at a great price, that's an on card autograph and has a solid design. I'll take that without a doubt any day.
