Trade Time!!!

Recently a reader of ’30-Year Old Cardboard’ sent me a picture of an autographed Andre Dawson card he was willing to trade me.  Of course I had to act on this and now I can show off the goods.

Take a look:

The Quest For The Autographed Multi-Player Card

As many of you saw a few short weeks ago I completed my first ever 2-player autographed baseball card.  If you missed that, or would like to see it again, click here.  Special thanks go out to Ron Cey and Steve Trout for making this happen for me!!! 

So that brings up the question as to what other multi-player cards are out there that would look great signed.  After some quick Ebay work, I have found a few that although they would be very hard to complete, they would certainly mean quite a bit to this nostalgic 1980’s collector.

Check ’em out:

Look, one can dream can’t he?  After several months of playing in the autograph game, I fully understand that getting any of the above cards completed is a complete shot in the dark.  But there are several team-type cards from the 80’s that Topps put in every set.  It looks like I’ve got to do some homework as this may be a nice challenge for this TTM collector.

Wish me luck!!!
