Collected baseball cards from 1986-1995, and again from 2014 to Present. A simple blog to discuss the hobby.
You should chase the auto version of the Moises. They are not that expensive.
Ooh, right you are! I just did a quick eBay search and found one for about $8 shipped! Thanks!
That Padres Matty Alou is fantastic. I've never seen a shot of him in Padre garb. I've also been looking to get my hands on a copy of that 2015 Bowman Moises Alou because it's one of his few cards as a Pirate.
Me neither until I saw that schedule card. Matty's last Topps card says he's a San Diego Padre, but he's obviously wearing Yankee Pinstripes in the photo.
That Alou Padres card is just awesome.
The thing that will either drive a collector crazy or make them jump for joy: There are several different versions of the photo on the front of the schedule, so this is 1 of 3 or possibly 4 unique versions of the "Matty Alou 1977 Padres Schedule Card"I'll be gunning for some Dave Winfield cards from the same set before too long...
I'll echo everyone here and say that the Padres schedule card is awesome. This is a concept that some intrepid team should revive for their promotions schedules!
Agreed, any team issued cards would be great!
