What’s black and white and romantic all over? This headshot Jennifer Lopez signed to Alex Rodriguez 20 YEARS AGO.

A-Rod isn’t lying when he claims to be a major J. Lo fan. Even before (like way before) he began dating the “big time global pop superstar," Rodriguez was a certified fanboy. Case in point: this autographed Lopez shot from nearly two decades ago that Alex casually found in storage in the year 2018.

“#TBT to almost 20 years ago when a big time global pop superstar signed a pic for a young ball player #lifecanbeafunnythingsometimes#pictureperfect #keepsake #jlo,” Rodriguez captioned an image of Lopez bearing her ultra-sentimental scrawl: “To Alex, With Love, [J. Lo signature, probably].”

Lopez regrammed the post, writing, “Wow!! Had to repost!!! He found this cleaning out storage!!” As sweet as that is, we can’t help wondering why it was in storage in the first place … ? If Jennifer Lopez gives you her autograph, you frame it in solid gold and nail it to your front door.

We’d say it’s like a retro vision board, but you’re supposed to actually look at those, not relegate them to the same home as that expensive but heinous rug your aunt bought you that you only take out when she comes to visit.

Swing and a miss, Alex.
