I'm quite sure if the Bowman Card Company could have forseen flat screen TV's, ipads and Skype, they would have not put those players on those ugly brown TV cards. And the umpire subset? Are you kidding me? Who cares? How many dingers did the man in black hit?

C'mon, give the umpires their due....

But, back when Topps sold Fan Favorites, the autos came 1 per box.....I was hoping for Brett, Yount, Schmidt, anything of the guys I grew up watching...........

....I pulled Eric Gregg ---- the rather portly umpire \:\(

From Wikipedia, on Eric Gregg:

His call of Game 5 in the 1997 National League playoff series was voted by Baseball America as the third-worst umpire performance of 1975 - 2000 era. His strike zone was later measured to have been five feet top to bottom and an unbelievable six feet wide. One memorable call has him calling a strike on a pitch that was over the head of Fred McGriff. [emphasis mine].

Well I finally get to post an auto up, my first older auto. I just like when it looks like the player took time to write out a great signature, not sure I could ever collect modern autos as the penmanship is horrid-
