Timing is Everything

Last week I got a small package in the mail that included a card that I was pretty excited about.

Awesome, right? I mean first of all, who doesn't love refractors. In case I haven't said so before, I go after refractor sets now. How could you not, with all the shininess etc.?

Second, look at Scott Sizemore's signature. He has arguably the best signature on the team. It's just all sorts of snazzy.

So yeah, I was pretty pleased to get a rookie card autograph of the Tigers' starting secon...awww crap.
The Tigers parted ways with 2B Scott Sizemore, trading him to the A's for RP David Purcey.

That was May 28th, or TWO days after this card arrived.
