Autographed Baseball Cards A-Z

When I got back into collecting five or so years ago one of the things that excited me was the availability of autographed cards.  Perhaps I went a little overboard but I think I picked up some nice cards.  This will be an A-Z series of posts with varying numbers of cards.

 2005 UD Ultimate Signature MVPs #MVP-FC

Talking Rod Carew here.  7 time batting champ, 18 time all-star, 3000 hit club, ROY, MVP, HOF.  All this on a hard signed card.  Need I say more?

1999 Fleer/SI
I love the SI Cover cards.  The headline says it all.  Best Wishes for a full recovery, Gary.  BTW, one of the best smiles in the business, too.

2001 Fleer Greats of the Game
Not the best color man in the world (he worked Cubs games for two years) but he hit one of the most famous home runs in World Series history.  Nice signature.

2004 Playoff Absolute Memorabilia #218 326/500
I think this card was part of a lot.  Still, I liked Ronny when he was with the Cubs and am glad he found a home in Pittsburgh.  Not wild about the sticker or the signature.  Is he going by "Ronny C"?  There's plenty more room for "edeno" kid!

2005 UD Signature Decades #SD-OC
My fav set.  Another HOFer who was a ROY and an  MVP.  I still remember Ernie Banks saying his name "Cepeder".

2002 Fleer Genuine Ink  699/975
Not a Hall of Famer but he was a 6 time All-Star, WS MVP, and  a member of the 1984 Cubs. Can't beat the moniker, "The Penguin".  Nice touch the way he works his number 10 into his signature.  Much appreciated.
