One year ago, I was at 21 Blake Snell autographs for the year in the middle of October. I ended the month at 22, and ended the year at 30. I am not going to come close to touching those numbers this year, and I am fine with having a smaller quantity this year.
Here is my latest Snell autographed card.
It feels like Snell has been in Allen & Ginter quite a few times over the years. This card is the first Ginter card that I have added to my collection this year, might be the last one I buy too. Not much interest outside of this card. The frame seems a little more ornate than in previous years. Really busy look. Maybe a little much with the slanted picture.
I do like that Snell has maybe cleaned up his autograph a bit. I know it doesn't look that much different, but it has been cleaned up a bit.
He also separated out his first and last names. The E on the end of Blake is a little clearer. I guess the Snell is still the same. Small steps, right?
Back of the card.
I always like the wording on the back of the Ginter autographs. Not the standard autograph/signature disclaimer. Sounds a little bit more old-fashioned.
