Featured autograph - Khalil Greene

I have tried to get as many 2005-2006 Topps Turkey Red cards autographed in-person/TTM to varying degrees of success - I spotted the Greene TPA signed card, when looking through certified autographs of players who remain curiosities for whatever reason.

I thought I originally saw the autograph card for closer to $2, but when I looked for it again, the listed price had gone up to about $5 or so - I finally relented to pick up the card up when I saw the price bumped back down.

With the potential to be a good all-around shortstop with power and a surfer boy look that probably played up to the home team crowd - Greene had the makings of a fan favorite with the San Diego Padres.

Greene however, turned out to be a notorious recluse and for him, the struggle was indeed real - as a MLB player, he was apparently beating himself up and was more consumed by failure than success.

Great looking card. Too bad he was never able escape his demons to put it all together.
