A Case of the Sundays- Geronimo Gil

This a new feature I'm starting in 2011 in an effort to show off an Orioles autograph every day of the week. It's a play on words, with a slight twist, from the movie "Office Space"; if you haven't seen it, watch it now. Seriously, don't even finish this post, it'll be here when you get back...

I decided on this name for my Sunday evening post because this is the time of the week that many of us are preparing for another week at work, probably with at least one co-worker you could live without. This feature will showcase cards, players or autographs that I don't particularly like. Normally, I'll try to stick to the mantra "If you don't have anything good to say, don't say anything at all", save a few choice barbs about what really grinds my gears.

Without further ado, the card that inspired this feature:


Horrible layout- check
Boring picture- check
Possibly the worst autograph that I've ever seen- CHECK

There's not much I like about this card, and I don't have many great memories of Geronimo either. It was fun to say his name, but that's about it.

Have a great week everyone!

Wow, that may be the worst baseball autograph I've ever seen.

If I had been a Donruss executive at the time, I don't think I would have paid Mr. Gil for his "work."

Horrible, horrible, horrible looking signature.

Glad you guys agree. I'm glad that this is "certified" since I think a 2 year old could fake his signature.
