Fergie Jenkins 2002 Topps Archives Reserve Certified Autograph
Simply stated, this baseball card that features the signature of Ferguson Arthur Jenkins is one of the finest pieces of my collection.
I won’t tell you what I paid for it, but I will say that I got an incredible steal of a card that I have been hunting for months.
Without further ado, the latest and possibly greatest addition to my autographed baseball card collection…

‘On The Road With psugator02′ – Jim Harbaugh – December 8, 2010
Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino
Wednesday, Dec. 8
Got a tip about the Orange Bowl having its introductory press conference at the Hard Rock. I guess I should’ve been better prepared. I got one 8×10 of Jim Harbaugh. Harbaugh walked by me at a little after 4 p.m. and signed an 8×10 of him under center while at the University of Michigan. It’s one of the best graphs I’ve seen all year. I had a photo printed for Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer but it came out too grainy so I didn’t even get it signed. I was the only grapher in attendance as Beamer stood literally five feet from me for more than 20 minutes. Not to fret as I will have many other chances to get both coaches on much better items.
Jim Harbaugh: 1/1 8×10 ..big, bold beautiful graph. Guy was dressed to the nines

Andre Dawson 1983 Topps Glossy All-Star
I am getting very close to obtaining my 800th different Andre Dawson baseball card.
This one, is number #775 in the ’30-YOC’ collection and I am thrilled to bring it home.
It’s not very often that I am able to grab a vintage card of ‘The Hawk’ these days as I have pretty much every issued from his playing days.
So, when I score a card that is over 25 years old it is a mighty triumph for me and my Andre Dawson player collection!!
How sweet it is!!!
