Card of the Day - 2014 Allen and Ginter : Dr. James Andrews Mini Frame Autograph
I don't acquire many non baseball autographs but when I do I turn to the Allen and Ginter brand to get my fix as they always have a huge variety of non baseball subjects each year. I already picked up Felicia Day's autograph and while still on the hunt for a few others I was finally able to lock down one from my list.
Anyone that follows sports in general knows the name of Dr. James Andrews. He is a world renowned sports medicine doctor that has worked on a who's who list of athletes from Bo Jackson, Roger Clemens, Albert Pujols and many more. I would never track down the good doctor for an autograph as I wouldn't know what to get signed if I ever did meet him but once I saw that he was included in this year's A & G release I put this card on my hit list.
Book value is $40 and when the card first hit the street eBay transactions at times neared that amount but I was never going to pay that much so I just had to sitt on the sidelines for a few months till the cost dropped to an acceptable level for me. It finally did and I pulled the trigger and acquired me another non baseball autograph.
