2008 American League Champions Autograph Quest Part 5

The 5th post in this ongoing series of on-card autographs from all the members of the 2008 AL Pennant winning Tampa Bay Rays is of right handed pitcher Edwin Jackson. The card is a 2008 Topps Heritage which he signed after a game in 2008 for my wife. Edwin is a super ball park signer and really good TTM as well. I think by now everyone has heard of EJ's triumphant return to Tampa Bay. He no-hit his former team and blanked the guy he was traded for-Matt Joyce who was 0-4. I wanted to say congrats to EJ on an amazing performance. I couldn't ask for my team to be no-hit by a better dude. Go Rays! Troll out.

  1. Jackson also beat another of his former teams, my Tigers, last Saturday night, ending the Tigers winning streak. I like Jackson a lot, and was sorry to see him leave the Tigers. He is a good guy, and hope he does well. I first saw Jackson pitch as a 18 yr. old rookie for the Jacksonville Suns, who were the Dodgers AA team at the time.

    Now, as for the Rays, what's going on with the Rays, 2 perfect games and a n0-no in less than a year, yikes.

    Good luck the rest of the way except when playing my Tigers), beat the darn Yankees and Sox, and win the Division.
