Nobody Wants An A-Rod Autograph...

Well I do! The first table that I went to on the second day, I dug through a bunch of dime boxes, and picked out about 50 different cards. That's not really what this post is about, it's about a few Alex Rodriguez autographs that I saw in a showcase. One was graded, but the case was cracked open, and the other one was a bit cheaper, and had a bold black signature. I asked about a price, and it seemed fair enough, so I decided to jump on it. Forget about what A-Rod has done in the past, with all the PED scandals, he's a changed person. He's not that jerk that charges the mound, or throws his bat down and argues a bad call, he's now someone that respects the game, just like how Derek Jeter respected the game throughout his career. Jeter was a very different player though, and him and Alex didn't get along very well when they both played together. Anyways, here's the card:

Yet another card I can knock off of my checklist! I haven't seen any on eBay (I have no intentions of getting rid of this card), so I'm guessing the reason why the price was high. This card will definitely be headed to Beckett for grading, and I'm really hoping for a 9.5/10. This card will be staying in this collection as long as I'm a Yankees fan! 
Thank you for reading! 


  1. Congrats on the awesome pickup.

    Considering his reputation you'd think his autos would be cheaper but nope. I traded away a Bryce Harper auto for my A-Rod auto.

  2. I think Braun autos bottomed out more than Arod.
