i'm taking advantage of one last chance here in the central time zone to say happy birthday to steve garvey. thanks to everyone who joined in today. here are a few more garvey cards that have been hanging around in my scanned folder for various amounts of time.
2004 upper deck legends timeless teams autograph (1981 dodger team subset)
here's a much more recent garvey auto - from 2012 panini national treasures
panini recognizes the fact that garvey was an all-star in 1984 and 1985, even if topps flagship sets didn't.
here's another padre garvey card, this one from 2007 upper deck sweet spot classic
hail the brown and orange patch! this patch comes from the padres' taco unis, as i think garvey used to call them.
sticking with the brown, here's a 2004 upper deck sp legendary cuts 'historic swatch'
thanks again to all who joined in to wish the first baseman of the team of my youth a happy birthday. i will compile the contest entries in the morning and get a winner post up around noon or so. and, just to be clear, i will randomize the list of blogs who posted birthday wishes (plus those who promoted the contest) on random.org 6 times. i thought about doing 65 randomizations, but that seemed like a lot.
