2nd Spring Training 2010 Autograph Success: Brett Butler!!
I sent Brett Butler 4 cards in hopes of him returning two of them back to me. I offered for him to keep a few if he wanted to. The other day I had an envelope in my mailbox and inside were the cards I sent to him. All 4 – perfectly signed!!
This is the second time I have sent cards to Butler, and each time he has signed the full lot for me. This time, I went for cards of him from his playing days in Atlanta as that is how I remember him the most from his playing days. In a way, it was Butler that taught me what hitting lead-off was all about. As a kid, I watched a ton of Braves game and it was Butler who led off quite a few of them. A great hitter, skilled bunter, and excellent runner – Brett Butler was a classy player on the field.
And just 19 days after sending these cards to him, he proves he is just as classy off of it too!!
Thank you Mr. Butler!!
