1987 Topps, Sid Bream



#35 Sid Bream

I got this card signed through the mail last month. Unfortunately, it did not come back as nice looking as it should have. A lot of the autograph rubbed off or something. I sent two cards to be signed and both of them were. And both of them ended up looking like this. Actually, the second one isn't quite as bad as this one, but it could have been much better. The bad thing is that the TTM request that I got back just before this one was about the same.

There are two reasons that I decided to go after Sid Bream's autograph. The first was seeing the success over at Paul's Random Stuff. The second thing that prompted me to send the cards out was the MLB Network. I don't know how many times I saw Sid's slide from game seven of the '92 NLCS on their commercials. So that combination prodded me to get Sid's autograph. That is kind of funny since I never bothered to write to him while he was playing.

Ouch, that looks a bit rough. I've never seen that happen on an 80s card before.

Since I'm checking out your blog for the first time, I don't know exactly what you are after but Sid is from my hometown and I have a ton of his autographs somewhere. I could send you one if you would like...let me know!
