Yep, none other than the second overall pick in last year's draft following Bryce Harper, Mr. Jameson Taillon signed a custom for me! I would be super excited about this pickup, and I still kind of am, but man, just look at it! It looks absolutely destroyed! Fortunately, of all things, the auto wasn't damaged much, but its surroundings were for sure.
So going into sending this to Taillon, I didn't know a whole lot about him, except for the fact he apparently is going to be a pretty darn good pitcher according to scouts. The Pittsburgh Pirates took him as the second pick in the draft, and is currently pitching in their minor league system. The Pirates, who somehow are now in first in the NL Central, have a nice future ahead with a very young team and this 6'7 pitcher with a 99 mph fastball in the minors waiting to make his way up. He's going to be exciting to watch, and I'm glad I reached out to him for an autograph before even more people decide to.
I can't seem to win with these customs, but I think I've got a plan for the next couple, trying to keep them from getting absolutely wrecked. We'll see when I finally get around to trying it.
