Found January 21, 2012 on Plaschke, Thy Sweater Is Argyle:
Another cheap eBay purchase, another Jerry Sands autograph. I've been fortunate enough that the two have gone hand-in-hand a number of times thus far in my time collecting Jerry's John Hancocks. Hopefully that trend will continue. My latest Sands addition was scored for just 99 cents plus shipping:So shiny! Dirty scanner not withstanding. It's a "rookie" autograph from 2011 Bowman Sterling. I'll give Topps credit for the sticker not being so obvious, though of course an on-card auto, like Sands' 2010 Bowman Platinum signatures, would have been more enjoyable. I need to get all of my Jerrys scanned and posted; it'll happen....eventually.
