What a great story. Brings a smile to my face. I was always a fan of Ryne's, and even more so now. Thanks for sharing and congrats!

My POV on this is that its not a waste because the item has sentimental value. That signature and inscription on another item would look prettier and be worth more, but it would be just another signed card to the OP, not something that truly makes him happy.

I think everyone is right. We all have different interests and priorities. I think it's cool because it's sentimental to him. Would I want it for myself? No, but it has no sentimental value to me personally.
Collect what makes you happy.

I agree that this was a waste of a signature... but I also agree with what other have said about the sentimental value.

But then again, when I get autographs my preferred item is a plain 3x5 card... and I ask them to personalize it (and write the current day's date).
Here's the payoff pitch from Familia to Fowler, on the way... and it's IN THERE! Strike three called! The Mets win the pennant! The New York Mets have won the National League pennant! Put it in the books! The New York Mets for the first time in 15 years are champions of the National League!

I think it's silly that any concern is placed on a signature that there are more than anyone could ever need and is a limitless supply for likely at least 30 more years.

With a common signature of a modern player I can see no better use in the world than for a sentimental item. Very happy the op recieved his sig and this is likely the most valuable Ryno in his mind out there.
