Why I Like It: It's my first ever autograph. Brian Williams, at the time was a prospect for the Houston Astros (1st round pick in 1990) and was one of the signers at our local mall here in Corpus. Now I actually went for another certain player who I'll be showcasing later in this countdown, but Brian Williams was free, and even though as a kid, I had no idea who he was, I figured "why not, he's a major league baseball player". Brian not only signed the photo but personalized as well. It's funny looking at all the autographs I have in my collection like Jordan, Kobe, Lebron, Emmitt etc..and remember that it alllll started with Brian Williams.

Why I Like It: It was one of my first "big" purchases and it was of one of my favorite baseball players as a kid. I remember being so jealous that my friend had a 1990 Topps Rookie Card of Frank Thomas, and he knew he'd never trade it so I had to have a rookie card of The Big Hurt. I bought this at our local flea market for 5 bucks over 20 years ago. For a little while, it was the best card in my whole collection. I loved it so much. Sentimental value is what keeps this card in my collection.
