or should i say purchased!  i recently saw an auction for a signed 1988 score steve garvey card.  what really caught my eye was that the auction title referred to it as a 'final tribute'.  as i have mentioned a number of times, score was the only card manufacturer to give the garv a card in 1988, and they did so complete with his full career stats on the back.  i was intrigued enough to check out the auction, and saw that it was being offered by rod of padrographs.  i bid on it and won it and rod sent it.
it's a nicer auto than the one that garvey signed for me through the mail over three years ago.  unfortunately, i missed out on some other items rod was offering, but he was sure to send along some extra dodger goodies, such as this sspc card of davey lopes
unfortunately, i don't believe that ron cey or bill russell were represented in the package.  rod did include a double play card that i didn't previously own - a 1993 score tim teufel card
with barry bonds making an appearance.

rod was also sure to send some twinkies, although not of the hostess or soon-to-be revived hostess-ish variety. no, he included a number of twins cards including the m&m boys - justin morneau
and joe mauer
these guys might not be together for too much longer as morneau could be moved at the deadline. 

big thanks to rod for the garvey and the bonus cards!
