I thought I would wait until today, my birthday, to post a recently acquired baseball card of most epic proportions:
1998 Donruss Signature, Significant Signatures #R3 Sandy Koufax autograph, #'d 0905/2000.
I bought it a few weeks ago, in fact, at All Star Cards in Santee, CA. They are one of my favorite card stores in California, so check them out if you happen to be in the San Diego area. My girlfriend and I were in the card shop when I noticed an Albert Pujols signature card. I said, "Man, I should just buy that instead of a risky box of cards." However, I then looked behind the Pujols autograph on the shelf and saw the beauty you see above. It was an epiphany of sorts, and love at first sight. The awesome father-daughter team at All Star Cards even knocked several dollars off the asking price. The black ink of the "K" and "O" in "Koufax" is imperfect, but to me the card is perfection in cardboard form.
I got my Koufax!
(Sweet trade post from Brad to come soon.)
