My First Pedro Auto

After a Red Sox player makes it to the Hall of Fame, I find myself wanting to splurge a little bit to get a decent card.  It happened with Wade Boggs.  It happened with Jim Rice.  This time, it was Pedro Martinez who has the distinction of being the first Red Sox Hall of Famer whose entire career I got to witness.  Well this is the card, and I saved a little bit of money because it is a Leaf card with no MLB license.  Most of Pedro's autos have been prohibitively expensive, but this was a nice, cheaper one.  And I finally got to add a Pedro Martinez autograph.
