TTM Success: Donny Sands

This card looks awesome signed!

Yankees minor league catcher Donny Sands signed my card c/o the Charleston Riverdogs. It was the only card of Sands I had, so I shipped off this Bowman Chrome Gold & Black Refractor, and the signature stuck perfectly. I did run an eraser over the card prior to sending to try and remove a little gloss.

According to, Sands is the Yankees #26 overall prospect. He was converted to catcher from 3B, and is by and large still learning the position. Still, the hit tool is there. He's off to a bit of a slow start at Charleston, so hopefully he heats up soon. It can't be easy learning to catch, while still staying sharp offensively.


  1. That signature pops on the card. Normally you see people convert from catcher to other positions, not 3B to catcher. Interesting. I wonder why they did that for his development.

  2. Looks fantastic, I hope I get mine back soon too.
