Today's card is Hank Blalock on a 2004 Upper Deck Power Up #15.
When I was younger I used to derive great excitement out of send off cards to big league players (mostly Rangers) and asking for them to sign them. Not all of them came back but enough did to keep me going.
Recently I decided to dust off the old art and try again for some autographs through the mail. Off went three requests. I reasoned that I would use the three as a test to see what the prevailing atmosphere is towards autograph requests.
This last week I received back the card in this post. Hank came through!
