2001 Fleer Greats of the Game - Kirk Gibson

One of the great things about the Diamondbacks Fan Fest is they have kids only autograph tables. The lines weren't too bad so I talked my son into leaving the play area with the inflatable bounce houses just long enough to get an autograph from D-Backs manager, Kirk Gibson.

Gibby signed his 2001 Fleer Greats of the Game card for us. This is my favorite Greats of the Game set. After I explained to my son that Kirk Gibson was Diamondbacks coach kind of like the coach of his t-ball team he thought it was pretty cool. Hopefully he'll still think so in a few years because this is the first baseball card that he's ever gotten signed all by himself.
