|2007 Topps Allen & Ginter|
It's Ken Jennings! Notable Jeopardy champion and local celebrity. According to the back of the card, he won over $2.5 million during his unprecedented run. He was also later beaten by a robot but that was not really his fault.
The blue looks great on the Allen and Ginter card. The autograph is slightly smudged as it was likely put into a penny sleeve right after being signed. I think I included the sleeve so that one is on me. Can't expect them to wait for the pen to dry. Next time I won't included any sleeves.
This was not my first time obtaining Mr. Jennings' autograph. I attended a book reading of his about 5 years where I had him sign a copy of Maphead. I am indeed a maphead. I could seriously spend hours reading maps.
It takes some work to send out TTM requests but the payoff is worth it. I'll try to get some requests out for Spring Training and hope for the best!
