Andre Dawson Autographed 1995 Donruss Baseball Card – SWEET!!!

Andre Dawson Autographed 1995 Donruss Baseball Card – SWEET!!!

That’s right – another sweet signed baseball card for my Andre Dawson player collection.

This card comes from the 1995 Donruss set, when Dawson was playing for the Boston Red Sox.

Have a look:

What I have found with many of my signed Dawson cards that features him in a Red Sox uniform is that the signature does not pop off of the card like they do from when Andre was playing for Montreal or Chicago or even Florida.  It probably has to do with the cards being darker since the Red Sox cards always have Navy Blue as a primary color.

Luckily, this one looks great.  And the Blue Sharpie signature truly stands out!!

Another great addition to ‘Ultimate Dawson’.

  1. Do you think that the changing card stock of the different companies had anything to do with this? I seem to remember a lot of changes around that time period.

    • Matt- I think it has more to do with the level of glossy finish. In the 80’s most cards had a matte finish that accepted the signature easily and cleanly. As we got into products like Topps Stadium Club and Fleer Ultra, the cards offered a more glossy look and the gloss did not hold the siganture as well – if you examine cards from these sets that were not ‘prepped’ properly, you will see that many are streaky and bubbling.
