TTM Success: Brandon Laird, brother of Gerald

Last week, I sent this good-looking 2011 Bowman card (courtesy of Napkin Doon) to Brandon Laird, a prospect in the Yankees system. Brandon is the brother of major league catcher Gerald Laird. He possesses a great bat that will carry him to the big leagues, as he was the Eastern League MVP last year. No small feat. He's a 3B but has played some 1B and OF this year to help give himself more options for playing in the big leagues. He had a slow start this season, but has been hitting a lot better as of late. There's a great chance we'll see him in the Bronx this September, if not sooner.

His signature is really nice. It bubbled a little which stinks, but overall it still looks nice on this card.


  1. Nice success. I got Laird to sign a photo for me back during spring training - even though I'm not a Yankee fan, I try to get autographs from the guys I see play in Trenton.
