Autograph of the Week: Clayton Kershaw

This winter, Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw signed a contract to make him the highest-paid pitcher in Major League Baseball.

The two-time Cy Young Award-winner has a reputation for signing baseball cards that makes him a favorite of autograph collectors with patience. Send a baseball card and a self-addressed, stamped envelope to Kershaw c/o the Dodgers’ spring training camp in Arizona, and next winter you may just find a signed card waiting in your mailbox.

I wrote to Kershaw last year, mailing my card on February 11th, 2013. Last month, I got it back – coincidentally on February 11th, 2014.

Kershaws-Challenge

 

Included in the envelope was a slip of paper promoting Kershaw’s charity foundation, Kerhaw’s Challenge, a Christian organization that “encourage[s] people to use whatever God-given passion, purpose or talent they have been given to make a difference and give back to others in need.”

“And whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord, and not for men,” – Colossians 3:23 (WEB)

    1. Very true – I couldn’t afford one from Steiner. I suppose there’s some chance that someone other than Kershaw signed my baseball card, but considering that I invested the cost of two stamps and a duplicate baseball card, I’m ok with that.
