I used my 2020 Harvey book to my advantage by getting a type of card I really wanted in my album, signed. I had been trying to get a 2006 Upper Deck Ovation signed but have missed out, then I saw this one of Jason Bergmann in my rookies box, so I tried again.
I also got a 2006 Flair Showcase and a 2006 Topps Rookie 52 signed. Those Flair Showcase are really nice. I've been able to get a few of the Rookie 52s done. I remember busting a box of those back when they came out. This was way before Heritage Minors. I kind of wish Topps would bring back Bowman Heritage to the mainstream.
Bergmann (b. 1981) played in the majors from 2005 to 2010 for the Nationals. He had a career record of 12-24 with 299 strike outs and a 5.04 ERA.
I mailed to Bergmann on May 7 and got the cards back on May 30, for a 23-day TAT.
