Mailbag: A Billingsley Card to Add to the Collection

This has got to be one of the more boring autographed cards in existence.  Heck, this entire set is snooze worthy.

I recently won a new autographed card to add to my collection on eBay.  It is a 2012 Upper Deck SP Signature card of Chad Billingley, and I got it for the rock-bottom price of $1.00 - with shipping it cost me under $4.00.   

This set was nothing more than a huge sticker autograph dump by Upper Deck.  They had lost their MLB license many moons ago, and it doesn't seem likely they will be getting it back soon.   So, as a consequence they decided to take their leftover inventory of autographed Baseball stickers and do something with it.  This set is the result. 

Collectors were understandably disappointed. 

If they put player photographs on them it would have been better received.  Instead, the hobby neglected the set - which is fine by me since bargains can be had.  Other Dodger autographed cards available include Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier and Duke Snider.
