I keep winning these cheap!Garvey FF.png

This upgrades my auto to a Dodger cardHurt 89.png

I am going to count this as a hopeful future maybe. I see the Dodgers picked up his contract and he is with their AA Tulsa minor league affiliate. Hoping he makes the big club roster at some point. These were extremely cheap, given the serial numbers. I think I spent less than $10 for all 3, with shipping. It's a small gamble, since I do have a ton of Dodger minor leaguers that never played for the big club as well.

/10, /15 & /25. Austin Beck

Beck was a real dud first round pick for the A's, he never amounted to much and when it was his last season to show some kind of hope, he got injured and was out all year. He might be able to put it together (especially in a minor league system a lot better at developing prospects than the A's) but I wouldn't hold my breath.

Garvey 60/99. Uniform number variant I collect.

Base auto version of this. I just saw a /10 and the /25 as well. Probably a 1/1 too, but I don't hold out hope of winning those anymore.

Snider. Always liked this phone card and kept losing out. Finally won one.

Thought this was lost to Standard trading card FAKE tracking, as it showed delivered 6/21. Finally actually delivered today 7/6!

Lot of Blue Crew items. Don't see this stuff as often as I would expect, as it was the kids club from the 90s/00s. This is just one of a dozen or more pieces total. Posters, stickers, postcards, etc.

Haha. Not holding my breath for any prospect. But, even if he makes it into 1 game, I have to add him, so pretty low risk here as he already is a MiLB Dodger.

Something I had never seen before, a 1977 Little League program with Garvey gracing the cover. Gratuitous, but I'll take it. Garvey was a Little Leaguer himself, but not in Anaheim.

A team issued/wire photo from the early days.

2nd copy of this card and it was also sans case. Maybe they sold some of these w/o the one touch? Seems off that this particular card would be stripped of its case twice, but maybe it originated from the same owner? Green /17.

Lofton got a lot of Dodger autograph love lately. Enough to water down the choices (and cost), which I appreciate. Before the buybacks and such, he was a pretty tough auto to chase down. Not so much anymore. This one is /199.

Claude Osteen RC. Have always liked this one, despite he is a Red. He would not have a Dodger card for another 6 years or so.

Not sure I am all that excited about it, but Garvey seems to be jam-packed into the latest Leaf offering, sans logos and such. Several different autographed cards, which I will chase harder than those stupid multi-player, little to no player image GU mega dump cards. I can now be choosier with what I will chase and not feel bad anymore. This is the first to arrive, /4

Have always really liked the 76 Topps design and the retro cards really stand out for me too. I think this is one of only a few retro 76T autos I have. I know I have a few from Fan Favorite sets, like Lopes and V Castilla among others, but I don't think i had any Signature Archives until now.

Garvey /10. Screen Shot 2024-07-11 at 6.01.58 PM.png

A very yellowed, but still cool Piazza. I noticed some of mine starting to yellow and they were stored in a box, so no sun or smoke exposure. Just the type of plastic used I guess. To those not familiar, these were clear plastic when issued.

The 25 has arrived. I think this completes the run, unless something between 1 and 10 exists.
Garvey 25.png

I got this game just for the small rule book. Can anyone guess why?

Owner was a smoker though. Love opening a box or mailer and get blasted by stale cigarette smoke. Disgusting. Time to air the thing out and hope for the best. If you smoke and sell stuff, YOU NEED TO DISCLOSE THIS. Its as bad as a crease or other physical flaw. Sometimes stuff is even yellowed from the smoke.

Another Dodger Blue Crew lot, with poster, postcard, etc.

Finally, this is a cool card I didn't recall until seeing it. Love the OPCs that vary greatly from their Topps counterparts. Also collect older Mariner autos, so this was a double score. Since he played for the Dodgers too, triple score!
