# 435 - Torii Hunter

Got a good one for the set. A friend on SCN helped us out with this signed 2008 Topps card of former Angels star, Torii Hunter. Torii signed it for him when the Tigers came through Pittsburgh late last month.

I actually have gotten Torii's autograph once before. It was way back in 1998 while he was playing in the Arizona Fall League. It was the first AZFL game I ever went to.

I'm pretty stoked to have this one. Torii's a four-time All-Star and has won nine Gold Glove awards.

  1. I love that he gives a nice, big signature...this card looks especially cool because it looks like he just finished writing his name with his fingertip

  2. One of the most under-appreciated stars in the game. And a classy guy too!! Nice pick-up!
