Send Me A Maddux, Receive An Autograph!!!
The name says it all. Allow me to provide more detail…
I need 5 more cards to complete my Greg Maddux player collection. I can easily scoop these up on a number of baseball card marketplace-type websites, but I want this to be a bit more fun than that.
So, here is what I want to do. If you can fulfill my need for any 1 of the 5 cards pictured below, I will send you an autographed card of your choice. And if you happen to have 2 that I need, you get two autographed cards. Etc, etc, etc…
Here are the 5 remaining cards I want to obtain:
1987 Donruss - 'The Rookies'
1989 Fleer - MVPs
1992 Fleer Ultra - Award Winners
1992 Topps Stadium Club - Members Only
1992 Topps - GOLD
If you have any of the above 5 cards and are willing to part with them, please let me know. I really want to complete this set and I would love the help from my readers in doing so.
I’m offering up all of the following cards…
So rummage through your stuff to see what you can find. If you happen to come across any of the Maddux cards I need simply leave a comment on this post telling me which one you have and which auto you’d like to trade for.

1981 Donruss Dale Murphy
This is the first card of Dale Murphy that I have picked up since choosing him as a new focal point of my player collections.
And away we go…
The card comes from Donruss’ premier issue in 1981. Overall, the cards lacks originality, but I do like the rather large space they left for a big picture. Normally posed photos and I do not get along, but with this card it works as we get to see a young Dale Murphy right before he was getting ready to dominate the National League and win back-to-back MVP awards during the 1982 & 1983 baseball seasons.
