It started out just last week.  The object, to attain all of the 01 Bowman refractor autographs.  Of course not the Pujols but all the others (including Ichiro).  Well the first one has arrived.

Set: 2001 Bowman Chrome Refractor Autograph subset (mail in redemption)

Card Number: 349

Player Name: Reggie Griggs

Aquired through: eBay

Price: $4.75 including shipping

Flaws: Smudge on signature (click on card to see better)

Player Bio: He’s actually a real interesting story.  He absolutely dominated Rookie GCL (Phillies) as a 22 year old.  To the tune of 0.340/6/42 in 206 at bats.  He was promoted to Low A Lakewood where he played in just 13 games and blew out his knee.  When I say blow out I mean destroyed it.  Even though he was listed as a top 10 prospect for the Phillies in 2001, they released him know it would be years (2 or more) before he could get back.  Turns out Reggie never played again professionally.

Remaining cards left: 17

Total spent on set: $4.75
