Josh Jung doodled on a single signed card. It just turned up

Rangers' rookie star said he's 'glad it finally surfaced!'

It's no secret that baseball card collecting is often a hobby Major League players take up themselves. After all, they grew up as fans first. The Phillies' Matt Strahm has been vocal about his own passion for the hobby, including collecting cards depicting players who have homered against him.

But Rangers third baseman , who finished fourth in American League Rookie of the Year voting less than a week ago after a stellar rookie (and World Series champion) season, took it a step further.

Jung confirmed on X (formerly known as Twitter) on Sunday that he had planted an "Easter egg" out in the card collecting hobby, having doodled on his own card -- which he also signed -- giving himself a pair of round glasses and a thin mustache with "Go Rangers!" written above his bust.

"I'm glad it finally surfaced!" Jung wrote. "It won't be the last."

Maybe other players will follow in Jung's suit, inspired by the young star. Seems like something fans should keep an eye out for.
