Thanks, I agree. I kept my eyes out for an on card auto release from Topps during his playing days but don’t recall any. Looked recently and noticed some different Archives released. I enjoy the action shot of his heritage card that release, so it was time to add a Lee auto.
I'm a sucker for green A's parallels. And that's my first autograph of Tyler Soderstrom, the A's 2020 number 1 pick. His Bowman Chrome Draft autos are just selling for too much right now so I'm going to hold off on one of those.
Second, the auto’d version of the Matt Chapman ‘20TS2 Player’s Medallions I’ve been stockpiling. Out of /10, it’s the only one I’ve seen on eBay since the release. I already have #1 of the three Un-auto’d versions...
Thanks, I really liked the clean 1999 design. I’ve been chasing that Tatis for a minute and it has a clean auto, so I jumped on it. It’ll make it easier to move other Tatis cards, when that day comes, holding this one.
Closing out the month with this pair of former A's shortstops:
The Bobby Crosby is a cyan plate out of 2006 Ovation. I've been picking up fewer plates in recent years but liked the looks of this one. Semien is a 2020 SI for Kids card, not sure when they started making these again but I liked the originals from the early '90s.
