i told you, i am a sucker for the red number.
here's an 8.5 x 11 team issue print from the mid 1970's
here's a similar team issue from later in the decade
1982 union oil volpe portrait
i have some more union oil commissioned sheets that feature the garv from 1984, but i'll show those in a different post
he was 3 for 3 in his dodger stadium swan song, and even drew a walk that night (although it was an intentional pass) as the dodgers beat the braves.
1992 trak auto dodger all-star stamps
i showed this stamp sheet during the all-star break. the full sheet is in my garvey binder because i don't have a loose version of the 1977 stamp, the only one upon which garvey appears.
more 8.5 x 11 sheets coming up.
1992 upper deck heroes of baseball sheet commemorating the gcrl infield
i categorize this next one as another 1992 upper deck heroes of baseball sheet, even though it has the all-star fanfest logo on it instead
upper deck continued its heroes of baseball series into 1994. here's the sheet they issued for what was essentially an old-timer's all-star game in 1994, featuring some pittsburgh pirate legends, as well as reggie jackson and garvey
2000 nabisco all-stars sheet
also courtesy of ebay, here is a 2001 dodger scorecard featuring some nice artwork of garvey
now we get into some autographed stuff. here's a 1978 team schedule signed twice by my favorite first baseman, although one of the autos is endorsed 'to sharon'. the front features the entire roster, including the coaching staff, of the team of my youth
now for some signed 8 x 10 photos.
garvey as a dodger, with the dual flap helmet
famed artist leroy nieman used many athletes as subjects in his artwork, including steve garvey. i have a poster sized print of his garvey, so the version in the binder is just a printed scan.
here's another print of a scan. this is a ron lewis piece
i'll finish up this initial trip through the oddball binder with some magazines. up first is a 1979 baseball update mag with garvey and rose on the cover
garvey has been on the cover of sports illustrated four times. i don't actually have a copy of the 1974 world series issue which features a collage of photos (including one of the garv), but i do have his 1975
stay tuned for more (lots more) from my steve garvey collection!
