1977 Topps, Gene Garber



#289 Gene Garber

Here is another card that I got signed through the mail last month. It took about two and a half months to get this card back.

There is one reason why I sent this card off to get signed. That reason is because I supposedly look like Gene in this picture. Last summer, my friend was going through some of his old baseball cards with his girlfriend (now his wife). When his wife saw this card, see instantly thought that it looked like me. A few days later, we all were heading to a game in Oklahoma City and my friend said "hey, I have a card of you". I didn't have a clue what he was talking about. He then pulled this card out and told me that Becky thought that Gene and I looked the same. I thought that it was pretty funny and I asked for the card so I could send it to get signed. It turned out that the card was pretty beat-up. Luckily, I found a replacement at the card shop this summer and I finally sent it off.

His sig looks great on that card...I like how he signed it right above the facsimile. Good pickup!
