2003 Topps Heritage, Josh Hamilton
#124 Josh Hamilton
Here is a card that I got signed at a Rangers game in 2008. It was the first time that I tried to get autographs at Rangers Ballpark and I didn't know which gate to go through to get to a good spot. For some reason, I went in the left field gate and I couldn't have picked a better gate that day. As soon as I saw the field, I saw Josh signing autographs along the left field foul line. So, I made a beeline down there and I was able to get all three cards signed.
Of course Josh was quite friendly as he chatted with fans and took pictures with them. It is probably the only time that I have seen a player stop to pose for pictures. I would have took a picture with him, but I was rolling solo on that trip. The other fans all looked like they were having a great time and I didn't want to bother them with taking a picture for me. Maybe next time.
I bought one pack of '03 Topps Heritage and every single card in it had a crinkled top right corner.
