I’ve been a collector of baseball cards for most of my life up until a few years ago. I still hold on to all of my Joe Mauer rookie cards and other autograph cards because I have faith that they will be worth something when he retires as a Yankee Twin. I have one card of Mauer that has his autograph on some baseball leather with a photo of him (?) on it. The past five years I’ve been looking at this thing and still don’t believe it’s actually his face on the card. The autograph is his but the face on the card just doesn’t look exactly like him. So who is it? I don’t know but I’m guessing perhaps someone else from the Mauer gene pool. Anyone have any ideas?
UPDATE: Eric Olson found this website that would suggest it is Jake Mauer http://www.mauersquickswing.com/baseball.asp?section=About%20Us&topic=jake-mauer-ii . Good work by Eric, I suggest yall read his Twins blog at http://thetwinsdifference.wordpress.com/ . There you will find his Call to The Pen Blog about the Twins which on the ADD meter, it keeps me reading so it has to be a good read.
UPDATE: Received a tweet today from someone who would know..
You can visit his site at http://www.freedomcardboard.com/
Would also like to thank @akneeland for suggesting @FCBsportscards may know the answer. His blog also passes the ADD meter http://www.twinstarget.com/
