I got these two cards back in the mail in late 2011, early 2012. At first I was thrilled since Jose Fernandez was one of the best players in the minors…but then I looked at the autographs.

The OCD in me would never be happy with these cards.
Normally I would just toss these cards, but in this case I kept them–and I have no idea why. But I have been looking for a nice upgrade ever since.
