1989 Topps 3

#348 Ed Hearn

This is the second of two Ed Hearn signatures that I got at the Willie Wilson Classic. This card is kind of funny compared to the last catcher card on here (Terry Kennedy). The last one featured a catcher that just popped out of his stance to chase down what was probably foul pop-up. Then we have Ed here in his fake pose taking his mask off before he even moved out of his squat. Which do you like better? Plus, he is squatting in grass (with his back to a pitcher, nonetheless) and he is smiling. It doesn't get in faker than that.

I just met Ed Hearn this weekend. He was the nicest person to everyone and even let people try on his World Series ring.

He was also promoting his book, "Catching Life's Curveballs" or something like that. He was sharing his email address with fans. He couldn't have been nicer to people.

Great blog. I'll add you to my blog roll.
