Fergie Jenkins 2002 Topps Finest “Certified Autograph Issue”

Fergie Jenkins 2002 Topps Finest “Certified Autograph Issue”

When I tell you that I have oohed and aahed over this baseball card for more than two years, it is not an exaggeration.

Heck, I even remember the first time I saw it.

It was on Wax Heaven.  Amazingly, someone sent the card to Mario as a gift.  And while Mario was, and is not, a Cubs’ or Fergie Jenkins fan, he was happy to have it.

Or so I thought…

More than a year after getting, Mario ‘Paid It Forward’ and sent it to Charlie, of ‘Hawk To The Hall’ fame.

And I have to imagine that Charlie still has the card, as he is a Cubs and Jenkins fan.

So, I immediately wanted one of my own.  And after seeing dozens come and go I got mine.

And I have to say the wait was certainly worth it – Hell, it made the journey that much more fun…

And here it is – FINALLY!!!

  1. Great card from a great set. I think there’s a Bob Gibson out there that used to go for pretty cheap too.

    moe.
