But that's not the topic of today's post. Today I wanted to showcase my collection of Tony Gwynn Sweet Spot Signatures that I've accumulated over the years. Let's start with my most recent purchase:
2005 UD Sweet Spot Classic SS Signatures #TG
I was the lone bidder on this card back in November. I think the high starting bid of $49.99 scared people away. Can't blame them. Had I known that I'd have to pay $59.05 after shipping and taxes, I probably wouldn't have bid on it either.
Regardless, it's still a good looking card and either my 20th or 21st autographed Gwynn card.
Next up is one of my favorite Sweet Spot Signatures designs:
2008 UD Sweet Spot SS Signatures #S-TG
Unfortunately, 2008 was also one of the years that have fading issues. I haven't pulled this card out of my box in quite some time. Half of me doesn't want it to accelerate the fade... while the other half doesn't want to discover that autograph is already gone.
2003 UD Sweet Spot SS Signatures #TG-AU
How do I know that Gwynn didn't hold these cards and actually sign them? One look at the autograph above should explain everything.
2003 UD Sweet Spot Classic Greats Autographs #CG-TG
2007 UD Sweet Spot Classic SS Signatures #SPV-TG
This is my other favorite Sweet Spot Signature design. This card also has some fading issues, but seeing Jack Murphy Stadium in the background takes my mind off of the problem.
Well that's all I've got for today. Here is your question of the day:
What Upper Deck baseball product do you miss the most?
I wish I had the tech skills to create a sidebar poll like Dime Box Nick, but I don't. So share your thoughts down below and I'll tally the results up in a few days.
Happy Thursday and sayonara!
