Collection: Shawn Green Buyback Autograph

Shawn Green has always been one of my favorite players.  He was an unassuming kid who wasn't built like a slugger, but had a swing that could propel balls into the bleachers.  True story here: I actually played against Green as a young teen.  I played ball as a kid in a Tustin youth league and recall hearing about this Shawn Green character.  Unfortunately, I do not actually recall seeing him play, but I do know that even as a kid he was spoken about as being a future MLB'er. 

Featured here is a 2001 SP Authentic Buyback insert card autographed by Shawn Green.

BTW, I was a pretty terrible ballplayer in youth leagues, but I gave it my all.  At least, all that I could.
