Here we have the saddest of autographs in my autograph collection.  I will say I really like this card.  I really miss the Sweet Spot brand. The idea behind this card is pretty awesome.  You get an autograph on the sweetspot of a baseball mounted in a card.  Of course the idea was a good one, however using sub par leather, or maybe even pleather here has doomed this auto like so many others. The ink is slowly fading and being absorbed.  I haven't checked on this auto since I made this scan a while back so I'm not sure what stage of decay the card is in right now, but at least it was still readable.  This is also an insanely low numbered set, numbered to Robin's number and very, very thick.

I'm actually surprised Topps hasn't tried to copy this.  It looked like for a while it might do something like this with a manurelic back when it was churning out manufactured bat barrels and glove cards.

But still a great card in the collection, even if time is not on my side.


  1. I love the Sweet Spot Signatures. It seems like the blue and red ink low numbered versions held up the best.

  2. I have one of those numbered to 75, and it's the same issue. They went cheap on the medium used for the autograph and, as a result, they gave us crap.
