That is some good stuff! Bummer that so many players were missed in certain uniforms, simple because Topps couldn't possibly get everyone and in all various uniforms. I remember the Lemongello card in 1978 Topps (I knew them all by heart originally). He had quite a story after baseball. I think I tracked down his 78 T auto for my collection, but I don't remember now. It was my first set and would love to have a complete signed set some day. Have most of them, but have never actually tried to see who I am missing. I am pretty certain I don't have Messersmith and probably never will. I'm sure there are a few more toughies I missed.
Well, here is the funny part. The Farrell auto that this one replaced was a signed newspaper clipping featuring him and Sandy Koufax. I hope one day to find a private signing to get it completed, but that's secondary secondary secondary lolNice Turk! I missed out on a Dodger photo signed by him and although no matter how high I might have bid, I was probably going to lose regardless. I sometimes hate having common sense and fiscal responsibility when it comes to spending on sports memorabilia. If I was a multimillionaire lottery winner, that common sense/fiscal responsibility would be gone!
