i picked up a few dodger autograph and relic lots a while back. it's great when folks group a bunch of dodger specific stuff together and the price of the whole is less than the sum of the parts. you know what i mean. for me, the star of this particular lot was this 2009 upper deck o-pee-chee card featuring andre ethier, james loney, and matt kemp.
this is the 'elk' (ethier, loney, kemp) referred to up in the title. yes, i was stretching for a catchy post title. anyway, i like the colors on the card. i used to have a similar card featuring three non-dodgers, but i traded it away and mildly regretted it ever since. i have a soft spot for o-pee-chee, don't you know.
speaking of which, here's a 1998 pinnacle plus card of mike piazza that was part of the lot for some reason. it includes a text line straight out of o-pee-chee's playbook - 'traded to mets 5/22/98'
which, while correct, totally ignores the 8 days he was with the marlins.
back to the relics, here's a 2010 topps allen & ginter matt kemp card
ethier showed up thrice in the lot thanks to this 2010 upper deck offering
finally, for this lot anyway, we have a 2001 bowman relic card from alfredo silverio
