Colorado Collection: Chase Headley

My newest addition to my Colorado Collection is MLBer Chase Headley.

There are many great things about this card.  First, the autograph is on-card.  Second, I love the old school 1952 Topps design.  Finally, the back of the card shows that he was born and raised in Fountain, CO, which is located 10 miles south of Colorado Springs on Interstate-25.

Chase had a successful high school career while attending Fountain-Fort Carson High School.  He went on to attend the University of Tennessee and was a teammates with Luke Hochevar during the 2004 and 2005 season, culminating with a trip to the 2005 CWS.

In 2005, Chase was drafted by the San Diego Padres in the second round and has spent his entire career with the Padres organization.
