Byrd is the Word
I picked this card up as an impulse combined shipping purchase somewhere around 2005. I think the card ended up costing me something like $1.50. At the time Byrd's stock was pretty low, and he looked like a failed prospect. Not that he's set the world on fire since then, but he has had a solid major league career.
I've always been a big fan of the Donruss Recollection autos, and this is no exception. The on card signature looks great, and the 2001 Donruss Elite set was a fantastic release. Now if only Marlon could work on the signature a bit...
