Jacob Hannemann “can’t wait to play in wrigley”


Jacob Hannemann inscription on 2013 Leaf Trinity

A professional baseball player expressing his dreams on the front of a baseball card. Looking at autographs, you wonder where is the soul. You want to see some sort of meaning behind a player’s autograph.

On the 2013 Leaf Trinity “Authentic Inscription” series, players are to write inscriptions next to their autographs. Some players simply write “Go Tigers” others scribble down their stats or perhaps some award. Minor leaguer Jacob Hannemann revealed his emotions by writing “Can’t wait to play in Wrigley.”

Has he made it to Wrigley since 2013? Not yet. Hannemann is currently with the Tennessee Smokies, Double-A affiliate of the Chicago Cubs. At 24 years young, hopefully he will be able to play in Wrigley Field.

1 thought on “Jacob Hannemann “can’t wait to play in wrigley””

  1. And then I saw this 2014 Leaf Trinity Kyle Schwarber autograph using the same inscription, “Can’t wait to play at Wrigley”

    That phrase seems less authentic now. Do the people at Topps recommend this phrase? Looking at other Leaf Trinity inscription cards on eBay, I couldn’t find this phrase used for other ballparks. Perhaps Schwarber and Hannemann were signing their cards side-by-side. Schwarber leaned over and saw Hannemmann writing this on his cards, so Schwarber stole the idea.
