    Awesome week, including knocking off someone from the needs list. But the number of needs doesn't change because Abraham Toro debuted last night.

    Keith Lampard also signed by Scipio Spinks

    Lampard is a tough, tough autograph to find. Got it for a pretty decent price.

    This is a pretty rare signature to find on a card, so very happy with this one.

    Nice pickups! Abreu might still be better than what Springer has been slapping on cards lately

    Are you saying that a 70T Davis is a tough find or just Davis on a card in general? I would have to check to see if I have a 70T, but I know I have most of his other cards signed and he has at least 1 certified card issued out there (non-licensed, but I think it states Los Angeles for the team).

    I didn't check, but do you have Aaron Pointer on your custom design? He only has the one regular Topps card (67 high #). I did also grab a 67 Venezuelan card of him and got him to sign both at separate times TTM. He lives a short distance from me, in Tacoma, WA and has been a very resposive signer through the mail the two times I sent him a card. He has quite a storied history, which is what alerted me to his existance and the desire to get an autograph from him.

    The 1970 Topps card is tough to find signed. He's not particularly tough otherwise.

    As for Aaron Pointer, I haven't sent it out to him yet. He is on my list to resend to. His rookie card is with the Astros, but my copy is in the hands of Alonzo Harris hopefully to be returned on day! A really interesting factoid about Aaron Pointer is that he is the younger brother of the famous Pointer Sisters.

    Yes, one of several interesting facts about him. I'm sure you know that he was one of the 9 rookies to be in a line up together for the Colt 45s. He also went on to become a NFL ref after his baseball career ended and my favorite, as of the last time I checked, he was the last professional baseball player to hit .400 in a full season.

    I actually had an autographed card of Art Howe already, but including Sparky was a no brainer.

    I have that Eddie and probably noticed it at one time, but forgot. it is clearly a Braves uni and one of the classic Topps no hat photos in case they are traded. He also checks the Tigers box for collectors that next year as well. That one might even be an Astros uni shot...Don't miss that time when new updates were that hard to make happen.

    Yep, clearly a Braves uniform. He is in a Houston uniform for that pic, but they put him as a Tiger because that was one of the years that Topps did not have the rights to use the Astros name.
