    MrMopar's New Dodgers Autograph Thread

    Planning to share my new Dodgers acquisitions as some of you do now for your teams. I thoroughly enjoy seeing the new adds regardless of the team and resect all team autograph collectors for their pure intentions. I will not be counting or logging percentages, although I will probably mention new additions to the team in 2020 and hopefully follow up with new signatures of those players or staff shortly after. Some of those will likely be in another team's uniform though, as has been my practice in the past. Having an item signed for every player on the team and also featuring the player in a Dodger uniform is probably next to impossible, or at least prohibitively expensive.

    Always looking to add unique items and cheap bulk/quantity signatures as well, so if you have extra cards to trade or sell, don't hesitate to message me.

    I will start the visual portion of this thread next week, as all of my recent new mail is still waiting for me at work after a few days off for Christmas.

    OK, maybe the biggest haul of the year. This was a batch sitting from before Christmas that I finally retrieved today. I am reusing ebay scans mostly. Sorry for the varying quality and sizes. Amazingly enough, only ONE Garvey related item in the entire batch. That may be some sort of record!

    First the Dodgers or Farm Club images and the big hit of the season perhaps, a certified Walter O'Malley that I have been waiting to grab at a decent price for some time. I am down to just a couple HOFers for LA with a certified Dodgers card (Torre, Bunning & Wilhelm) if they even exist. That is why I love the buybacks so much these days:

    There were 7-8 different pages of these team rosters. Vintage signatures of Steve Garvey, Steve Yeager, Jimmy Wynn, Davey Lopes, Willie Crawford, Andy Messersmith, Walt Alston, Jim Gilliam. Not sure about Messersmith, but could be a vintage sig. His is usually a lot more artful.Click image for larger version.

    Finally, a little cheating to wrap it up. None of these players were new to the collection, but are one time Dodgers in another teams uniform. I may or may not continue to include stuff like this if I am not adding a new player to the collection. Depends on the mail day, as a good percentage of my acquisitions involve current or former Dodger players:

    I tell you, you really get to know the players on an all-time roster when you do this kind of collecting, but there are so many more that you kind of forget played for the team at times!

    I know I'll never take up team autograph collecting, but I do appreciate it. There's something really cool and personal about having autographed cards of the guys that play for your team. Godspeed with your pursuit mrmopar.

    Good luck. I used to chase Padres autos but nobody sticks around to become franchise players these days.

    To me, that is part of the fun of the team autograph collecting, locating the obscure and not just the stars. In fact, I tend to value the Dodgers scubs higher than equal scrubs from different teams, simply because they are Dodgers. Who else would think a Luis Lopez https://www.baseball-reference.com/p...opezlu01.shtml autograph was worth anything besides me? You really have to love the team to buy autos of guys that played briefly and never did much of anything else.

    Two non Dodgers cards today, although the Blue and lack of logos on the Marichal makes it look more like a Dodgers card than a Giants card.

    These cards are obnoxious. Like the Leaf ITG GU dump crap, I wanted to get one of each type, not necessarily all of them. These are large, about 5'x7". The bat piece is huge, which may seem good, but it sticks off the card too far. A thin slice would accomplish the same result, but with a nicer presentation. I am in a light Garvey phase, where there just isn't anything new or unique out there to buy. Good for my wallet, I guess.Click image for larger version.

    A couple more of these Archive Signature Edition cards. I have to say I really like these, if only to allow me to add some oddball/obscure players that may not have other certified autos, especially in a Dodger uniform. Rick Honeycutt:Click image for larger version.

    I keep saying it, and yet it doesn't seem to ever come true. I say repeatedly that I want to cut back and start to laser focus the buying to only key "must have" items, so that I slow the growth of my collection for the eventual sell off at a later date. The thrill of the deal just keeps me locked in. I am not a frequent big spender, but I can knock out a lot of little purchases with ease, spending the same as if it were a big purchase, so it is easy to lose control.

    I want to say that this may be my key pick-up of the year, because I want to spend less. However, you never know what will pop on to ebay, so I will say this with a grain of salt.

    This knocks off a Dodgers need and a HOF need, the latter being something I have nearly stagnated on, with the exception of an occasional new member that I had missed before (and that rarely happens too, because I have been trying to prepare for the most likely future candidates too).

    I don't usually "splurge" with ebay bucks, meaning I don't go out and look for something I would not otherwise buy anyway. I figure if I am going to spend the money anyway, I might as well use the bucks to pay off multiple smaller purchases. This time though, a larger purchase just happened to coincide with the bucks award. The seller also offered a very nice discount offer shortly after I saw and put it on my watch list. I could not resist the combination of "free" money to spend and a great discount! I accepted the offer immediately after I saw it.

    If you want to look at it from the perspective that the bucks are "free" or "found" money, which is essentially true, I only ended up spending about $35 on this item from my own money. I am quite happy about that!
