Today I’ll start with the first Ranger to has his number retired, #7, Rod Gilbert.
Other on-card options are 2008-09 UD Masterpiece Brushstrokes, 2010-11 Dominion Signatures, 2010-11 Playoff Contenders Classic Tickets, 2011-12 Panini Private Signings, 2012-13 Classics Signatures and Social Signatures, all of them some pretty nice choices.
But the card I have is the 2010-11 Zenith Yours Truly Autograph. In this case, I didn’t choose it, it chose me.
This is a card I won from the Sports Card Radio Forum after one of their breaks. While I did not select it, the card does have a lot of the elements I look for in an on-card auto. A nice sized photo of Gilbert with a clear area for his bold signature. It does not feel like he had to fit his autograph into a tight area.
The photo on the back is different than on the front. It's not numbered but it is certified and that’s good enough for me.
Currently you can find most of the cards I mentioned above street valuing between $10 - $20 so his auto is not one that will break the bank.
