Love him or hate him Ryan Braun is the face of the Brewers. As a Brewers fan that fact disturbs me a little. Mainly because we have and have had other players that could easily have replaced him. I have forgiven him for his steroid use and the whole circus that followed. Well forgiven him to a degree, he did get a man fired for doing his job just to save his ass for a year. But that's a whole other story.
Regardless of Ryan's past transgressions I've wanted to add his autograph to my collection for a long time. And up to a few years ago that would have cost me big bucks. Oh what a few years and a steroid scandal can do. After selling a few things on ebay I had a little money to play with and decided to see I could find. I wasn't sure which way I wanted to go, just an auto, a relic auto, dual auto. After looking for a few weeks I found this beautiful 2015 Topps Five Star on card auto. Overall I really like the look of the card. I had thought about trying to track down one of those great looking black cards with silver signature, but this card fell into my lap and I ended up picking it up for less than $10 delivered.
