Featured autograph - Julio Teheran

Atlanta Braves top prospect Julio Teheran signed this card for me at the Futures Game hotel in 2010 - for a young prospect, he has got a very legible autograph, though I wonder how if it hasn't shorted up already.

Teheran looks to make his Major League debut Saturday against the Philadelphia Phillies - despite not quite having the same buzz and fanfare like Stephen Strasburg's MLB debut in 2010, there should still be a lot of interest, particularly from the 'prospectors' who are hoping someone like the 20-year old Teheran becomes an impact player for years to come.

A fun fact is a memorabilia company already has Teheran on lock down and he doesn't typically sign the sweet spots on baseballs - unless at an organized event where fans are paying for his autographs.

Nice auto, did you get a chance to talk to him?

Can't wait for the game tonight!

No, I didn't really talk with him as I was trying to get other players.

Sweet! He's gonna be a monster when he makes it up for good.
