3 Spring Training Returns: Ryan Sweeney, Armando Galarraga, & Kyle Seager

Today was a good day at the mailbox. In addition to the return from Jeremy Bonderman, I received three spring training returns as well:

  • Kyle Seager 2/2- The rookie third baseman for the Mariners signed and personalized cards from the 11 Topps and 11 Bowman Platinum sets. I was worried that the Platinum might bubble, but the signature looks really sharp with the refractor background. Sent 3/9 (10 days)
  • Ryan Sweeney 1/1- The new right fielder for the Red Sox signed his 09 Topps card. Sent 3/9 (10 days)
  • Armando Galarraga 2/2- Mr. Almost Perfect signed cards from the 09 Topps and 11 Topps Heritage sets from Orioles camp. Sent 2/15 (33 days)


  1. Does it bother you when players personalize their signature with a "To Frank"? It would bother me, mainly because my name isn't Frank. :D

  2. It would bother me too if my name wasn't Frank! I really don't mind when players personalize, I always see it as the equivalent of a bonus inscription that I didn't have to ask for. I don't sell any of my autographs so I don't mind seeing my name on the card. My grandfather and dad were also Franks, so with any luck I'll have a son with the same namesake and pass the cards on to him.
