As a Blue Jays fan I spent a good chunk my baseball fan experience watching the Yankees win the AL East year after year after year... many of those seasons with Joe Torre at the helm. So, it was bittersweet to get this autograph return - on the one hand, excitement at checking another name off, but a member of the team I love to hate.
Nonetheless, Torre has an impressive career as a player and then manager, but it is one that is still going strong. He currently serves as MLB's Chief Baseball Officer.
Mr. Torre signed my index card (Nice! Not many HOFers are willing to do that!) with blue sharpie.
