I have been to Peoria 3 different times this season to watch a total of 5 games. Each time I have been lucky enough to get an auto from pitcher Jake Woodford. The Cardinals drafted him 39th overall in the 2015 draft. He has pitched the entire season in Low A as a 19 year old and was named a mid season All Star. While 3 other pitchers from the starting rotation have been promoted, Woodford remains in Peoria. My guess is the Cardinals want him to experience the playoffs in September.
Last week I received this 2015 Bowman Chrome certified auto that I won on EBAY for $4.50 delivered.
These 3 cards I got signed in early June at a game. Woodford was charting pitches in the stands that night. Our seats were close to him, so after the game he signed for us. Very similar to the 2 cards from 2 weeks ago, with the slight difference of the k in his first name. Maybe since he only signed 3 cards he took a little more time.
I will say Woodford has been very polite and even talkative the 3 times I have seen him this year. It is nice to see a young player who was a high draft pick not be arrogant or self centered. I wish him the best of luck and hope to see him in the Majors in 2-3 years.
