2006 Upper Deck, Wilson Betemit
#520 Wilson Betemit
Here is the second Wilson Betemit card that I have posted on this blog. I posted the first one almost two years ago and it can be seen here.
This is one of the first Betemit cards that I got signed and I got the autograph in late June 2010. Wilson was with the Royals at the time and the day I got this card signed was the last time I 'graphed the Royals parking lot before the game. That was also the only time that I made the trek up to Kansas City just just to 'graph the lot without going to a game.
Wilson is playing for the Orioles this year and, through 89 games, he is hitting .254 with 12 home runs and 35 RBI.
While Wilson was a Royal, he seemed like a decent signer. I got him by the Royals parking lot on at least two different occasions and I even got him a week after being traded to Detriot last summer. I'm not sure how his signing habits have been this year, but I am sure that Ryan, from the Great Orioles Autograph Project, will let us know after the season.
