There’s a new big name among the first wave of autograph signers for this year’s National Sports Collectors Convention in Chicago.
It’s Alex Rodriguez.
Once baseball’s highest-paid player, he’s a member of the 3,000-hit club and a player who hit 696 home runs during his at times controversial 22-year MLB career with the Mariners, Rangers and Yankees.
