Auto Collection: Gary Sheffield

No matter how disgruntled and surly this man became he could still hit the crap out of a Baseball. Sheffield had bat speed faster than superman. Here is my 2005 Playoff Absolutely Ink auto/relic card of Gary Sheffield. It claims to have a piece of a game-used fielding glove in the middle, but if sure doesn't look like leather.

2010 Topps Sterling Dodger Inserts

Here are some Dodger insert autos and relics from the recently release 2010 Topps Sterling offering. The below cards are far from a complete listing of all the Dodgers available, just a sample of some of the nicer one's I've seen. Most of the cards have parallel versions with various different print runs. Click on any of the pics to enlarge.

Piazza! I still miss this guy. He should have never been traded and retired as a lifelong Dodger.

The Duke!

Will this be the last Manny Ramirez card in a Dodger uniform? Don't bet your life on it.

Here are a couple of Jackie Robinson's.

Here are a couple of different Roy Campanella's.

Here is a dual auto/ relic book card featuring HOF pitcher Steve Carlton and our young ace (and newlywed) Clayton Kershaw. This is an awfully nice pairing.
