Autographed Cards A-Z

When I got back into collecting five or so years ago one of the things that excited me was the availability of autographed cards.  Perhaps I went a little overboard but I think I picked up some nice cards.  This will be an A-Z series of posts with varying numbers of cards.

This got left out of the last post (I've been straightening up a bit).  Some people probably think this card is hideous but I like it.  I want one of those caps.  Jeff never made it to the majors but his Dad did.  Dave Heaverlo was a relief pitcher for the Giants, A's and Mariners (1975-1981).

Jim was one of the original Mets but had his best years as a Cub.  This is one of his rare certified autos.

Kenny was 17-13 for the 69 Cubs with six shutouts.  He's also the winningest Jewish pitcher of all-time, 174.

Holtzman won 59 games for the Swingin' A's from 1972-74 and went 4-1 in their 3 WS Championships.  He hit a home run off Andy Messersmith in Game 4 of the 1974 series against the Dodgers. Dig the California tan!

The only thing wrong with these nickname greats cards are the stickers.  Here's a downer for Cubs fans -- consecutive cards of Cubs pitchers who appeared in three World Series after being traded to West Coast teams.
