Here's autograph number two from yesterday. My sister procured Mike Bordick's signature as well as Jason Berken's. I've already posted the only Berken card that I own, so I'll post the autographed scan below.
As you can see, Mike Bordick's John Hancock isn't quite as legible as Craig Tatum's, but it is leaps and bounds better than Berken. It's worth noting that Berken looked much thinner than I had remembered, and it so happens that he adopted a more healthy diet and lost thirty pounds this offseason. Hopefully that helps him to stay on the field in 2011.
I mentioned on Friday that the main attraction for my sister was pitcher Brian Matusz, and he was caught off guard when she handed him a replica of his own #17 jersey to sign. "Is it alright if I sign on the number?" He asked. "I don't think I've ever done a jersey." He placed his autograph on the top of the "7", and it looks pretty sharp if I say so myself. Matusz apparently has a lot to learn about this sort of thing. While my sister was waiting in line, she overheard Berken telling the lefthander that he was actually signing the back of his photo postcards instead of the front. Brian flipped one of the cards over and realized his mistake, and also remarked upon how good the photo looked. I guess players do pay attention to those kinds of things. Take note, card manufacturers.
