Brett Wallach 2010 Great Lakes Loons #32
Card Review: B+ If this card looks familiar, it's because it's the second time I've posted it. The first one I came into possession of was autographed. I wrote at the time when I posted it that I didn't know if they were all autographed, or just the one I had in hand. It didn't seem like that outlandish of a thing to do for a minor league giveaway, to have the players autograph them all. This card serves as confirmation that they were not all autographed.
I prefer this one to the autographed one. That's not a knock on Brett Wallach, I just don't like autographed cards, regardless of whose signature is on it. I mean unless it's something really goofy, like a Pedro Martinez autograph on an old Don Zimmer card, or something like that. But as far as autographs go, they don't do a lot for me. When I was a kid, they were a huge deal, but it was also more about getting close enough to Will Clark to get the autograph and the player acknowledging your existence. I don't get the current craze of autographed cards in packs, but who am I to judge. I hoard Tim Wallach cards.
