My first Nick Swisher autograph was this one, which was in the 2004 USA Baseball 25th Anniversary set. I found the card in a set I bought at a hobby shop called What’s on Second in San Antonio, Texas.
While it came out two years after his first Bowman cards, it was his first certified autograph ever made.
The card also came in black-, red- and green-ink versions. I own them all except for the green — only two of those exist. You can see all three versions of the card that I have after the jump.
Do you have a Swisher item I might want? Contact me on Twitter, @chrisolds2009.
