    When I was in middle school in 1997 when Bowman was released, my grandparents used to take me to the mall every weekend. I would usually only have enough money for a pack or two of cards, so this particular time I got a pack of 97 Bowman. To my surprise, I pulled the green ink autograph of Derek Jeter. I was so happy and excited I had to tell all my family. I traded it a couple weeks later to the shop for some bowman chrome rookies (Travis Lee and Jose Cruz Jr, etc)

    Ah, good ol Travis Lee. I lived in AZ the year the D-Backs became a major league team and I remember when everyone was saying Travis Lee was going to be our first superstar, the cornerstone of our franchise for years to come and boy, we were so excited.......

    Instead he became the first bust of our system.

    I bounced in and out of collecting a few times. In 1999/2000 timeframe, I pulled my first GU from 2000 Upper Deck football, Courtney Brown. Then I took time off and joined the military. After getting back from deployment in 2005, I checked out some 2005 Topps Chrome retail. In it I hit a black refractor auto of Nate Schierholtz. I still say he had one of the nicest-looking signatures in the modern era.

    My first pulled auto came out of 1997 Topps Stars when I stopped into a card store in Cooperstown after our family had just spent the day at the HOF Museum. I bought a couple of loose packs and hit a Monte Irvin rookie reprint auto, a very cool looking card even though I had no idea who he was at the time (I was 11).

    2000 SP Top Prospects. Local 7/11 had packs for $6 apiece I believe. Autographs were 1:7 packs or so. Pulled a Jorge Toca autograph card.

    I do! I'm a Braves fan, and Maddux was one of my secondary collections as a kid, so it won't go anywhere.

    Dang, I can't remember his name even though it was the 1st and only auto I've ever pulled. All I can remember was that he was a backup catcher for the Phillies/Pirates about 12 years? ago. Last name started with a J but it wasn't a common name. Any help?
