Player Refuses To Autograph Topps Heritage Card

It has been a dream of mine to collect a base set of cards and have every card autographed. I think that it would be something that would look great framed and be a nice conversation piece. However, if you want to live my dream and actually pursue the near impossible, you need to stay away from 2012 Topps Heritage.

Why would you want to stay away from Topps Heritage, one of the most popular brands by set collectors? Well, you would be hard pressed to find an autographed 2012 Topps Heritage #249 Alberto Callaspo card because a legitimate autograph version doesn't exist.

Why doesn't this autographed card exist? Well, Alberto has a good reason not to sign this card. Marcia Smith, of the Orange County Register, catches up with Alberto to uncover this mystery. You can read her full article here about why he doesn't sign this particular card:

Smith: Angels' Callaspo the latest victim of 'error cards'

Marcia also shares some other interesting stories in baseball card lore which I highly recommend. A special thank you goes to Marcia for allowing me to link to her article.
