Collection: Adrian Beltre UD Origins Autograph
I'm a big fan of inserted certified autograph Dodgers cards. So much so that I will seek out just about any signed Dodgers card- as long as the player is in a Dodgers uniform. Therefore, this card featured here qualifies.
This is a 2005 Upper Deck Origins Signature card of former Dodgers third baseman Adrian Beltre. As you can see it is actually a Mariners card; since Beltre signed with them out of free agency the December before the issue of this set. Given that, the only pictures available to Upper Deck must have only been Dodgers affiliated. So, instead of air-brushing the photo they kept it as is.
