2007 Upper Deck, Dave Borkowski
#716 Dave Borkowski
You cannot beat a signed card of a guy signing autographs!
Here is a card of Dave Borkowski that I got signed at a Round Rock Express game in 2008. Dave was playing for the Express at the time and he signed this lone card for me before the start of the game.
Dave pitched in the Majors for parts of seven seasons with the Tigers, Orioles, and Astros. Though he started a few games early in his career, he was mainly a middle reliever. He pitched in 175 games between 1999 and 2008 and went 13-20 with 1 save and a 5.87 ERA. His best season was with Houston in 2006. He got into 40 games that year and he was 3-2 with a career best ERA of 4.69. That was the only season that he had an ERA under 5.00.
