chan ho park through the mail success!

when i heard that chan ho park had signed with the yankees, i quickly got a couple of cards together and sent them to tampa. about 3 weeks later, he returned one of them signed (he kept a 2009 topps, for what it's worth).
i was pretty excited because most of the dodgers' staff from those years (brown, nomo, valdes, astacio, etc.) are tough to get autos from.  plus, i have been a fan of park's since 1995 when i attended his first major league start in san diego.  it was the day after the dodgers clinched the nl west if i recall correctly.

park had some good years with the dodgers as a starter, and then later as a reliever during his second stint with the team.  he seems to be blatantly chasing the ring now, going from the dodgers to the reigning world series champs in 2009, and now trading up to the reigning champs in 2010.  i hope he gets his ring, but only if it comes after he rejoins the dodgers.

thanks chan ho!
