I like surprises that show up for my sports card or sports memorabilia collection. This time is no different and I always thank my awesome fiancee for coming up with great things for me. While sometimes it seems she may not care for my collecting or understand why I do it, she always finds a way to add something great to my collection.
The last awesome thing she added was from last Christmas. She bought me a Jon Lester autographed photo from him celebrating after his no-hitter in 2008. It’s a beautiful picture and autograph that sit right against the wall I look at while sitting at my desk. This time, it’s something different.
How awesome is that? It has his autograph and an inscription of what appears to be his favorite verse.
The best part is that my fiancee told me how she utilized the information I have taught her over the years on how to determine whether an autograph is authentic or not, COAs, and legitimate online retailers of authentic memorabilia.
Maybe she does care for my collection but won’t admit it!
Happy Birthday to me!
