A Hard Act to Follow

You may have already read the special announcement over at Phungo that I have been approved as a franchisee in the Spot the Signature contest.  I thought this might give me a chance to move beyond just showcasing Padres signatures, even though they are the best my favorite team.  I will warn you that the signatures will not all be Padres, or necessarily even all baseball some of my favorite signatures (and most incomprehensible) and from non sports people.  Most of the signatures will not be as clear as this Hall of Fame signer, who lives about 2 hours away. 

The rules will remain the same, and will be posted on the initial Padrographs Spot the Signature post which will be posted on January 3, unless Phungos' Spot the Signature goes into extra innings.  I will post each weeks signatures on Sunday evening, which will be a different time from Phungo since we are on different coasts.  Thanks Phungo for letting me play along.   I wonder whose signature that is on the Krukkie card at Phungo.  Phungo alluded to my love of books if you want to know more about that check out my website,

I am sure the contest is in good hands.

Field of Cards said...

I just saw your blog for the first time. The name Abner to Zimmer...funny as it sounds, Abner drew me in.

In 1986 my brother traded all his Shawn Abner 1985 Mets Topps rookies to me for all my Clemens 1985 Topps cards.

I was just 13 and he was 17. He convinced me Abner was the next superstar.

We still laugh about it. Fortunately I was so distraught that I bought a ton of Clemens after the fact, to make up for my blunder. Unfortunately, Clemens' reputation has since been sullied.

Ah, all that is miserable is miserable it goes.
