Michelle Baena Autograph Card

Michelle Baena is one of the hardest models to get in Benchwarmer cards; it's why her cards usually sell for more than the others' on Ebay, which is ironic, because she sells autographed items of her own, at affordable prices ($15 for a personalized 8x10).

Her career really took off after she made the cover of Playboy for the May 2005 edition; she has since appeared in a bunch of fitness magazines, most Benchwarmer sets since, Mac & Bumble, as well as the USA National Bikini Team.

I'm glad I have this card (#13 of 18 different model autographs), from the 2009 Benchwarmer Archive set, pretty much a ''Greatest Hits'' set offering leftover ''special event'' cards to the general public and patches of worn materials from previous photo shoots; more and more, Benchwarmer, instead of pleasing their ever-increasing fan-base by making original new sets and printing more cards of more models, go the other way around - they make ever-more-limited sets (the last few limited at 199 cases produced); it seems they'd rather make a dozen Ebay resellers happy than make enough cards for people who want them.
