Featured autograph - Frank Viola

I got at least several cards signed by the 1988 American League Cy Young Award Winner when I was in Las Vegas at the end of April - Viola is the pitching coach for the New York Mets' AAA affiliate.

One of the cards I got signed was a 1989 Sportflics card - because of the lenticular surface, I used to think it was harder for someone to sign them and/or sign them in a way where the autograph won't smear into the card.

However, for anyone who still have these random cards in hand and can get them signed either in-person or through the mail - the cards can actually be inked up and can hold an autograph in a presentable way, just like other trading cards from the last 25-30 years.
