STS Profile Garret Anderson and a Retirement

Garret Anderson made his Spot the Sig! debut on Sunday - in honor of that he announced his retirement after a very productive 17 seasons.

1996 Leaf Signature Series Bronze - Garret Anderson 

Garret Anderson will be remembered as an Angel - He patrolled their Outfield for 15 seasons through all three of their recent location names (Los Angeles, Anaheim, and California).  Anderson retires with 2529 career hits Hits, 287 Homers and a World Championship (2002). 

Pretty much makes him a Hall of Very Good player. 

The card above is from the 1996 Leaf Signature Series.  There were three different levels of autos in 96 Leaf. The Bronze cards were the lowest level.

This was likely an easy one for Spot the Sig! reigning champion Card Buzz who is an Angels fan and avid auto collector.  I am sure he has seen Garret's signature hundreds of times.  That expert knowledge was good enough for an Erick Aybar leadoff Triple that has gotten Card Buzz a base runner in this edition of Spot the Sig! 

Section 423 Row 7 Seat 4

CSDsCustomCards picks up the Section Bonus (416) edging Captain Canuck (432).  Canuck did ok one of 3 participants picking up the Seat Bonus(5) - the other two were CSDs(5) again and Daily Dimwit(3).  Dimwit, who narrowly missed the auto for a second time, was able to get 2 bonuses as he nailed the row number as did Night Owl.

A lot of big Bonuses this week as Both Daily Dimwit and Night Owl plate runners. The amazing thing here is that both of these guys were able to do this by faithfully getting on board for the bonus questions every week.

I wish I would have noticed the price on the ticket before I made my guess. I know from experience that you are not going to sit in the lower level for 150 bucks.
