2000 Pacific Crown Royale Jeff Weaver Autograph

There is not much of a Jeff Weaver market these days, but I am always willing to pick up his cards when I see them on the cheap.  He spent half a summer with the Cardinals, but was a major contributor to the team's World Series Championship during the 2006 season.  Weaver started the season with the Los Angeles Angels (of Anaheim), lost his job to his brother Jered, and was traded to the Cardinals for a minor leaguer.  A few months later Weaver won the fifth game of the World Series defeating his former team the Detroit Tigers.  World Series winning pitchers are always worth a few dollars.  Even Anthony Reyes.

Besides offering me a chance to own a new Jeff Weaver card, I was also happy to pick up a cool autographed card from an old Pacific set.  Pacific put out quite a few autographs during the 2000 card calendar and they are all on-card signatures with several of the different lines featuring different die-cuts.  The Pacific autographs can be a little bit tricky to find at times, and since they were die-cuts, they tend to be condition sensitive.  There are some good names in the autograph lines too.  This Weaver card hails from the Crown Royale set which also features autographs of Lance Berkman, Trot Nixon, Alfonso Soriano, Brian Giles, and Eric Gagne.  I think I might actually be a Peter Bergeron away from this set.
