Pat Neshek's incredible autograph collection includes Babe Ruth, Wayne Gretzky and Napoleon

Pat Neshek, who now pitches for the Astros, has put together a pretty solid eight seasons in the Majors. He's compiled a 2.78 ERA, made his first All-Star appearance last season and has become a reliable force out of the bullpen for five different teams. And during that time, he's also developed one of the greatest autograph collections in the history of autograph collections.

The 34-year-old famously nabbed a Babe Ruth-signed ball from John Lackey, has hundreds of pro hockey signatures and even collected an autograph from 18th century French military commander Napoleon Bonaparte:

"You know, I didn't know those existed. It was in an auction house and I guess they're pretty common actually. His autograph's out there a bunch."

And as far as where it's located: 

"It's on a letter with war supplies. It's in French. It tells what he needs for supplies for the war. It's stamped with a red seal and he signed the bottom."

Well, that's exciting! Isn't that exicting, Napoleon?!
