My first Heritage hit of 2012 – Jim Brosnan autograph

Heritage is really trying hard to suck me in this year.  On top of the design which is more visually appealing than the three previous years put together, I pulled this in the 5th pack I opened:

Brosnan pitched for the Cubs, Cardinals, Reds and White Sox over 9 years, compiling a 55-47 record with a 3.54 ERA.  What he’s probably best known for are his books “The Long Season” (written as a diary of the 1959 season) and “Pennant Race” (detailing the 1961 season).  “The Long Season” is a book I’ve long thought I should read, it was the first book that took an honest look at the life of a major leaguer.  Perhaps this is a sign that I should get off my duff and read it.
