Autograph request through the mail received: Roberto Alomar

Roberto Alomar c/o home address - signed one card in blue Sharpie and didn't return the other [2004 Topps Cracker Jack].

Alomar was considered one of the best second baseman in Major League Baseball history - a defensive wunderkind and an explosive top-of-the-lineup catalyst through his prime, he helped the Toronto Blue Jays win back to back championships in 1992 and 1993.

I received this request on Dec. 21 after a two or three week wait - this knocks out another 2001 Fleer Tradition autograph card and I've been working on trying to get cards from the set signed for about the last seven years.

Alomar was one of the guys who I have missed and just never got in-person when he was an active player - though I do remember another through the mail request sent and received back in the late 1990s, when he was still with the Baltimore Orioles.

He has got a great looking signature.
