Andre Dawson 2006 Topps Co-Signers Certified Autograph!!!!
Hey, it was about time for me to snag a new Dawson autograph for the collection. And I am really happy and proud to show off this one:
Brimming with team spirit, this card’s photo and color scheme show off the Expos team colors of Red, White, and Blue very proudly.
The design is very clean and basic, but the sharp and detailed colors of Dawson’s uniform really stand out vividly against the muted background.
This Dawson certified autograph is the 20th of my collection – YEAH!!!!

The Checklist Is Built. Let’s Do It!!!
Yessir, I am ready.
It took very little time to build and now I am ready to move on to my favorite phase – collecting.
I am going to go after the full 1976 Topps team set of the Cincinnati Reds. And while this team set has substantially fewer cards than the ’75 set, the challenge to complete it while not spending a ton of money remains.
The Reds’ roster was loaded with offensive superstars, and there are several cards in this set that will be heavily over-priced. Lucky for me, I am a disciplined shopper…
I cannot wait to get this going.
Here is the checklist I will be looking to conquer:
||Rose, Perez, Morgan
Don’t worry, I’ll post each and every card from this set as I obtain them.
Wish me luck!!!

Ozzie Smith 1993 Bowman
It’s not too often that you see a picture of Ozzie Smith taking a mean rip at a ball, but that is what Bowman gave us with this 1993 issue.
What I do notice is that even though Ozzie appears to have produced a mighty swing at the pitch, his bat is perfectly level and in control.
That is the sign of a truly disciplined hitter – his technique is flawless…

Joe Carter is the only player to have three consecutive 100-RBI seasons while playing with three different teams. Carter drove in 103 runs in 1989 for the Cleveland Indians, 115 runs in 1990 for the San Diego Padres, and 108 runs for the 1991 Toronto Blue Jays.
