2004 Topps Originals Signature Edition Kent Tekulve /14
This is one of those by any means necessary cards for me. Teke cards are just so damn cool that when one pops up on eBay I will gladly overpay a little to make sure I get it. Thankfully for the most part his cards are very affordable. If I recall this card had an opening bid for 9.99 and I was the only bidder. Not some crazy good deal by any means, but a nice price for a rare card.
Teke is still going strong as a post game commentator for the Pirates tv broadcast. He had a health scare a couple years back and had a heart transplant, but looks great today. While I don't agree with a lot of his commentary the man bleeds black and gold and you have to respect his loyalty.
Thanks for reading.
