1998 UD Collector's Choice - Willie Blair

The stack of D-Backs that Dennis from Too Many Verlanders sent us back in August inspired me to send off a few TTM autograph requests.

I sent this 1998 UD Collector's Choice to Willie Blair c/o the Fort Wayne TinCaps before their season ended. It came back signed a few weeks later.

Willie was one of the Diamondbacks starting pitchers back in 1998, their inaugural year. He lost 15 games while he was with Arizona. He would go on to lose one more game that year for the Mets. He was acquired by New York at the trade deadline in exchange for Bernard Gilkey.
