Auto Collection: Kirk Gibson 2005 Fleer Classic Clippings

With the Dodger season quickly coming to a thankful close there is nothing left to do but to share some autographed Dodger cards from my own collection. As a new feature here I will share some of these cards here as often as possible. If you can't wait, feel free to check some of them out on my facebook page, here. I'll be updating that page often over the next coming weeks and months.

Here are the front and back of the 1995 Fleer Classic Clippings "Cut of History" autographed card of Dodger hero Kirk Gibson. It is serial numbered 9 out of 25. I often imagine Gibby glaring out to left field in the pic on the card as he takes Eckersley deep in the World Series. As Dodger Blues is want to say this was the last meaningful Dodger moment.

eBay: Manny's Bat Barrel Triple Threads Book

Even though the enigmatic one is no longer a Dodger you have to admit that this bat barrel book card is pretty cool. It is two cards that fold into one- much like a book. This "1 of 1" card has a couple of pieces of a game-used uniform and features the nameplate from Manny's bat. Unfortunately, neither the bat or the uniform piece correspond to his time with the Dodgers.
