I have heard many variations about what he can and cannot sign so I'm not sure exactly what is and isn't true and I don't think anyone knows for certain except for someone close to Junior, his agent, or UD.
If I made it big as a professional baseball player, which was always my dream, there is no way in HELL I would sign one of those contracts. I could go on a 3 paragraph diatribe about this, but let's just say that it is almost sinful for a professional baseball player, what with his 5 mil per year salary and other endorsements, to turn away a 8 year old kid with a topps card because he has a contract with donruss.
Topics like this make me hate professional sports in general.
