Chris Potter was kind enough to take a Bo Jackson card to the National for me.  He didn't ask for any kind of payment for the help, so I definitely appreciate the gesture.

Unfortunately, in what is beginning to look like a pattern, the card was signed with a Staedtler.  I did not request Sharpie, so I can't really complain.  The autograph isn't nearly as thin as the Thomas autographs in my last post, but it isn't quite as bold as I would have liked.

On top of that, Bo gave a very small autograph.  I guess I should be happy that Bo put his #8 on the card.

All in all, I'm happy to cross this off of my wantlist.  I still need Bo for the 1991 and 1992 Upper Deck sets, as well as a rookie card.  I just couldn't bring myself to pay $316 for 4 signed cards.  I think I might have an opportunity to get the other cards signed early next year for $40 a pop, which is a lot easier to stomach. 

In the meantime, I am one step closer to completing my favorite Upper Deck set of all time.  All I need now is Joey Cora, George Bell, Ellis Burks, Dave Stieb, and the Robin Ventura team checklist.
