Don’t worry, I wasn’t going to leave you hanging after my post from a few days ago. To briefly review, I managed to get my hands on personalized notes/signatures from four historical figures earlier this week, and they couldn’t be more different. I’ll be revealing a new one each week.
Let’s start with a conqueror:
Granted, not much of a surprise since you saw the title of the post and everything, but this is pretty damn cool. I’ll point you to the Wikipedia page to read more about the man himself, as I don’t have nearly enough space and time to go over all his accomplishments here. Besides, I don’t want to bring back any traumatic memories of middle school history tests in our readership. In summary though, I will say it’s pretty remarkable to hold a letter written by a man who more or less conquered Europe, and shaped the course of human history.
Plus, when he traveled to the future, he loved water parks, bowling and ice cream.
Sophistication fail right there, but it’s my generation. Couldn’t help myself, sorry.
Seriously though, I’d definitely say it’s an awesome perk of my job to be able to see these items up close, even if just for a moment or two. You may be able to get your hands on a piece of it yourself, as it’ll be featured in the upcoming SP Legendary Cuts Baseball product, which will hit stores on June 3rd. Cool as these items may be, we do have them for a reason: our customers. They’re not just for me to sit here and brag about ’em.
Next week: a true champion, and American icon who just so happened to be a huge fan of Napoleon.
