Cardinal Matt Carpenter’s grateful personalization

Posted March 5th, 2015 by Tom Owens and filed in Facebook, Matt Carpenter, personalized autographs, St. Louis Cardinals

I spotted some great St. Louis Cardinals candid photos on the team Facebook page Wednesday.

Most of all, there were some awesome inscriptions on the photos.
Sure, the regular season limits active players to a “best wishes” or “good luck” personalization.
Seeing the Matt Carpenter pic made me ask:
does anyone ever add “thank you” to their autographs?
Two generations prior, celebrities of all kind would thank a fan in writing when giving an autograph.
Readers: ever gotten a “thank you” autograph? I’d love to know more.

    I wrote to Pedro Beato when he was with the Mets during Spring Training 2013. I mentioned a couple of things we had in common in my autograph request. He personalized his autograph to me with my first and last name and added “thanks for being a great fan.”
