look what i got

a certified, on card auto of the left arm of god.  1998 donruss signature series sandy koufax auto.
i had been thinking that i wanted a sweet spot auto of sandy's, but never saw the right one at the right price during the year or so i was watching, so i submitted a best offer on this one, and it was accepted.

a while ago, i kind of whimsically noted that i have a goal of obtaining autographs (ttm or otherwise) of all the players for whom the dodgers have retired a uniform number.  while this gets me closer to that goal, there are still a couple of toughies (jackie and campy) before that's done.  which reminds me, i still have a couple of others that i have added to my collection but haven't yet shared.  stay tuned.

You know me, I'm a Twins fan. There's a special spot in my fan-gut that REALLY doesn't like Sandy (ya know, cuz of the World Series). However, if I ever ended up pulling a cert auto of him, such as this one, I would probably still keep it. Congrats!

Probably one of, if not the most affordable koufax auto around. i remember someone selling a ton of those of a period of time a while back. i think they were going for as low as $75 a piece when 3-5 were listed every couple of days. I believe there is a la and brooklyn version.

Now I'll have to start wishing for that Brooklyn version.

That card's a beauty. Congrats!
