Card Show Purhcase #1 – Tony Gwynn 2008 Upper Deck SP ‘Legendary Memorabilia’ Game-Used Jersey Card

Card Show Purhcase #1 – Tony Gwynn 2008 Upper Deck SP ‘Legendary Memorabilia’ Game-Used Jersey Card

While not the first card that I picked up on Saturday, this one could be one of my favorites…

I am starting to accumulate a nice collection of the cards from this set, and I really enjoy the design and overall look of this set.

With just enough of a vintage look and feel with the muted colors and Sepia tones used in the background of the card, SP did a great job with their photo selection for this set, and especially this card.

While I cannot tell if the colors of Gwynn’s uniform have been enhanced or not, I can tell you that the colors from his Padres’ uniform really stand out in person when looking at this one. 

From his early years with the Padres, this card is an instant hit in my collection!!!

Another Hall 0f Fame relic card for the collection – SWEET!!!

And who wouldn’t want to add a game-used relic card of one of the game’s greatest hitters to their collection?  I know I would, so I did…

Serial numbered 71/75, this card comes from the 2009 SP Legendary Cuts set.  The image of Gwynn is an older shot – I just wish that the relic featured the old Pardes’ colors too.

Still, it’s a pretty awesome looking baseball card!!

Baseball Card Show Purchase #6 – Tony Gwynn Game-Used Jersey Card

It’s not often that you get to grab a card of a team’s greatest player of all-time for a low price.  Couple that with the fact that you have a piece of game-used jersey affixed to the card, and it is even more special.

So when I saw this card of Tony Gwynn, Mr. Padre, in the $2 bin, I quickly snatched it up!!  And while the card’s design, and photo choice for Gwynn is not the greatest, having this card in my collection feels great.

One of the premier hitters in all of baseball history, Tony Gwynn personified patience at the plate.  En route to 7 batting titles, Gwynn mastered the art of hitting better than any player during his era. 

This card is numbered 37/100.
