I picked up this 2012 Topps autograph of Gio Gonzalez on Listia recently. I was the winning bidder by 1 credit. The total cost was 3,334 credits. That is more than I am accustomed to spending, but it was worth it. The card looks great. And it’s not exactly a no name. Gonzalez is shown in an A’s uniform, but he played for the Nationals last year. And he turned in quite a season. He almost won the Cy Young. I can understand why RA Dickey won the award though. For the record, that is a sticker autograph.
I have been a New York Yankees fan for my entire life. I have collected baseball cards for over 20 years. I did take a brief hiatus from 1996 to 2004. Nine years is brief, right? I prefer cards made after 2004. I also prefer cards that measure 2.5 in. by 3.5 in. I also have a thing against baseball cards that don't feature a baseball player. I collect all teams and players, even the Red Sox.
