1999 SP Signature Todd Stottlemyre Autograph

The quest for Cardinals autographs is never ending.  I always prefer the certified variety of autographs over the in-person autographs, but sometimes they are difficult to find.  There are of course some players that do not have any certified autographs and another set that have a limited quantity.  My card this morning is a perfect example of the later.  In his fourteen year career, Todd Stottlemyre pitched on several different teams including the Cardinals, but more significantly was a part of three World Series winning teams.  Two with the Blue Jays and again in 2001 with the Diamondbacks.


1999 SP Signature Todd Stottlemyre Autograph


Stottlemyre has exactly one certified autograph and you are looking at it with this 1999 SP Signature card.  I have had my eyes open for the card for a long time, but they rarely come up and can be tricky to grab when they are available.  Really happy this card has a new home in my collection.

    1. Glad to see someone else enjoying this set too. I actually did I write up on the set not that long ago. http://thesnortingbull.blogspot.com/2012/11/30-year-top-50-1999-sp-signature-edition.html

  4. I'm going to need to track down that card. Is it individually numbered? Just so I know how many might be out there.

    1. Having collected this set for awhile I am positive there are autographs that are short prints that were never declared. For example, I have always wanted the Ron Gant for my Cardinals autographs, but it is next to impossible to find. One pops up and it gets grabbed or bidding gets crazy. This Stottlemyre card can be the same. Try to find a Sandy Alomar Jr. That's another non-declared short print.
