2010 Topps 206 Mini Framed Autographs #TA-BS Brian Schneider

Shows you what I know.  In a post not yet three weeks old, I declared that Phillies back-up catcher Brian Schneider was "definitely gone" after filing for free agency.  Yesterday, the Phils re-signed the 34-year-old catcher to a one-year deal to again back up Carlos Ruiz and serve as Vance Worley's personal catcher.

Schneider has been all but ignored by Topps during his tenure with the team.  He's had cards in the 2010 and 2011 team issued sets (both series), but his only other Phillies card since 2010 is this autographed insert from the 2010 Topps T206 set.
