2005 Topps Total, Ron Mahay
#639 Ron Mahay
This is the second Ron Mahay card that I have posted on here. I posted the first one back in December and it can be seen here. That one was a card that I bought off of Ebay that I got signed in 2009. This one was signed in 2009, too, but I didn't have to overpay to get this one card. I was having a hard time tracking this card down, so I ended up just buying a box of 2005 Topps Total and I was lucky enough to get this card in it. I got this card signed by the Royals parking lot after a game.
Ron pitched for the Twins the past year and a half. He was signed by the Dodgers this spring, but he was released before Opening Day. The Diamondbacks picked him up on a minor league deal, but he was released in the middle of last month after posting a 9.58 ERA in ten appearances. So, Ron is currently a free agent. He is 39-years old, so it may be hard for him to find a job. One bright note is that he is a lefty.
I really have no idea what is going on with Ron's signature. I think I can make out the first letter of is first name and the last letter of his last name and that is about it.
There is still about 48 hours left to get in on the College World Series contest. Don't worry, you don't have to know anything about college baseball to play, you just have to be lucky.
