Nationals Autograph: John Patterson


2006 Bowman #172
Nationals Star
Position: SP
Bio/Summary: Poor John Patterson. All potential and ability, all injuries. Look at his 2005 numbers – he was pitching out of his mind! A 130 ERA+ (w-l doesn’t matter given the quality of the team)! And then he got injured at the beginning of 2006 and was never the same after that. It was a sad day when he was released and picked up by the Rangers, but he never made it back, retiring in January of this year. Godspeed, John.
How Did I Get It?: Bought it from someone’s private collection.
Did You Know?: Patterson is married to the 2005 Miss District of Columbia Shannon Schambeau, who was 4th runner-up in the 2006 Miss America pageant. This is Shannon:
Rating: 6/10 – Man, I thought getting hold of a Patterson auto was awesome back in the day (I actually have another that I’ll post eventually). Unfortunately, that didn’t quite pan out, but I do like the way he signed this card, even if the card itself is only somewhat average.
