Phungo Spot the Sig! Contest - 1st Inning

Today we here at Phungo would like to welcome everyone to the Winter 2011 edition of Spot the Sig!

This STS! contest will feature 9 weeks (innings) of autographs for Phungo readers to guess the signer. Each Autograph will be given a base hit value. The reader that scores the most runs via these hits will win the Spot The Sig! Contest. As the winner you will be crowned Phungo Spot the Sig Champion and you will become part of Card Blogosphere History - And I may even toss in a bunch of those extremely valuable late 80s cards as a prize!

Before boring you to much with the particulars of the Phungo Spot the Sig! contest I will present this weeks Auto:

The contestant that correctly guesses this weeks auto will be rewarded with a Double!

These are the ground rules that I have stolen from a 2008 Tribe Cards Quiz contest:
  • Respond in the comments to THIS post.
  • Only the first correct response will be awarded the weeks Hit.
  • Only ONE guess per person, please
  • If you choose to ignore the above rule, only your FIRST answer will be taken under consideration
  • Feel free to chat in comments, but please keep it clean
  • That pretty much sums it up
Each week I will try and come up with a bonus question that is related to the Auto, Baseball, Pop Culture, or is noteworthy or (more likely) completely unrelated to anything.
The bonus will be good for minimal value - typically a Walk, this will also give a chance for two winners each week.

This weeks bonus question is....
Team Phungo attended roughly 15 baseball games during 2010 (Majors, Minors, Phils and other Teams) Name a player that hit a home Run during any of those games.

3 Notes on this Bonus
1) Only one bonus Submission per person
2) Each Player can only be picked once - any duplicate entries will be ignored
3) There can be more than one winner if Person A picks Mario Mendoza and Person B picks John Kruk and team
Phungo got to witness both players hit homers this past season then both folks get bonuses!!!
This weeks bonus is good for a WALK

Killebrew was correct. Obviously that was not challenging enough.

Yep, I was too late too, but I found it here: Plus, those retired players actually tend to have legible signatures!

Bonus: Shane Victorino

Jim said...

And I'll go with Raul Ibanez for the bonus.

Let's try Chooch for the Bonus. Mr. Ruiz should be good for a homer. That Kilabrew was an easy one.
