There's Matt Adams, Alex Cobb, Chris Archer, Jon Jay, Allen Craig, Wil Myers.....the same seven or eight players who have signed for all the other Topps products this year. I love Wil Myers and will collect his autographs, same with Allen Craig, Jay, and Archer. Can I get a different Cardinals player? Why don't we get Trevor Rosenthal or Mujica to sign? I'd take a James Loney autograph in a Rays uni at this point too. Seriously. Variety is the spice of life. Big Yawn again.
So, pleading with Topps to change their ways is kind of like watching paint dry. It's going to happen, but worrying about when is not productive. It might be a long time. Throw on some coffee.
So, I branched out and decided to find an autographed card of someone missing from my collection who would be worth adding. I searched the Tier One autographs high and low and came up with....
2013 Topps Tier One Jean Segura Autograph
Caffeine kicking a little bit. If you did not see the Jean Segura picture on the top of the page, or the link you clicked on to view this post, this card seems a little bit of left field for this blog. This is about the most exciting card that I could of a player whose autograph I do not already own. Segura is having a decent season, but there is just so little diversity in who signs for Topps products these days. Sad.
While I was picking up my Jean Segura autograph I also picked up a favorite player autograph. Again, this guy has signed for almost every Topps product this year.
2013 Topps Tier One Chris Archer Autograph
I also understand that Archer is having a great rookie season for a contending team, but again, let's see some new players signing. I have a few more Tier One autographs en route and will post them next week some time. The caffeine has kicked in, time to go.
