1992 Ultra, Roberto Alomar
#143 Roberto Alomar
I got this card signed through the mail while Roberto was with the Blue Jays. This is the first Roberto Alomar card that I got signed. Rod, from Padrographs, gave me another one that I posted in December. You can see that one here. I posted that card on the 19th of December. It's a 1991 Fleer card. Today is the last day of February and I haven't even finished up my 1992s yet. But, I should be done with those in by Tuesday. Then I'll be showing some older cards that I got signed at Royals Fanfest and ones that I have received through the mail.
I'm glad that Rod gave me that other Alomar card. The signature on this one is hard to see (it actually looks better in the scan) as it is signed over the dark dugout. Any more, I try to avoid getting cards with dark areas on them signed, if at all possible. Sometimes, they are the only card I have. But, back then, I didn't really care what card I sent as long as I had doubles.
