I love baseball cards, I love collecting baseball cards, but even I can hardly understand all the technical jargon of this, but all I know is: I love baseball cards, I love collecting baseball cards, and I want a Collin Balester autographed card.
According to Chris Olds of the Orlando Sentinel, Nats starting pitcher Collin Balester (pictured on the right) has been chosen as the fifth player in the 2008 SPX Rookie Signatures Redemption program.
Collectors who found a redemption for card No. 149 (RR4) will receive an autographed Balester card after they redeem it online.
A new rookie will be announced each week until all seven redemptions are accounted for. Previous players announced are Oakland A’s OF Carlos Gonzalez, Tampa Bay Rays 3B Evan Longoria, Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw and Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce.
And how much will it cost you to get the chance to find this Nationals Golden Ticket? SPX costs $20 a pack.
A pack of SPX also might not include a game used piece of the Shroud of Turin.
