Caught a A ballgame today and what a wonderful day it was. Mitch Hanigar was doing a rehab stint and during his first AB, ripped a solo HR into RF. Alberto Rodriguez followed later that inning with a 3 run blast. However, by the time we snuck out around the 5th, the Sox were behind.

I try to remember to go to this game each year, since we are not far from their home stadium, but I don't always make it. You can bet the years I didn't go, someone's RC is included! I am not sure if I got the Julio Rodriguez set, but I know I missed the Chris Taylor set for sure.

Anyway, this year they were randomly inserting signed cards into the giveaway sets. What a great idea that I am surprised has not been used yet. Granted, most of the fans coming to the game are probably not collectors, let alone Single A autograph collectors, but a small percentage are.

We had 4 in our party and received 1 of the limited autographs. That set was in a team bag and had a sleeved auto card in the middle. The other 3 sets were still factory sealed. Turns out I got the Manager, Eric Farris. I guess it is better to get a guy who tasted the majors, then some single A kid who never makes it out of the minors. However, if someone from this team even makes it to the MLB level, or does so and becomes a fan favorite or better yet a legit prospect/star (like Rodriguez from a previous team), these cards have some serious potential.

I didn't check with anyone else to see if they got a signed card and if so, what it was numbered to and am watching ebay to see if any appear, but my Farris is numbered to 10 copies. The sponsor, a sportscard shop, put little clear stickers on the signed card as a COA. Greta idea for the autograph collector. Imagine putting that team set together though!!

I had no idea they did this! Not bad at all hitting one of the autos. I was at the Crown Bar today in Tacoma when I saw the M's were down 6-0. Finished my drink and spicy chicken sandwich and I was out! Glad to see Hani starting his rehab assignment. Now, if we could only get him and Kyle Lewis back on the field with Julio, could have something going!
