Padrograph #1028

Nick Noonan played in 7 games for the Padres in 2016.  He is currently at AAA Colorado Springs for the Brewers.

Of all the Padres that have had Topps  cards so far this year I am only missing a signed card from Edwin Jackson.

Game Recap 4.19.17 (6-10, 4 GB, tied for 4th)


With roughly 10% of the season gone, it is projected that the Padres will win 60 games and lose 102.  That should be good bad enough for a #1 pick.  The Padres have had the first overall pick 5 times and chose the following, Mike Ivie, Dave Roberts, Billy Almon, Andy Benes and Matt Bush.

Cliff Floyd played in 10 games for the Padres in 2009 at the end of a seventeen year major league career.   I have submitted this card to two or three private signings and this is the first one that actually happened.  Cliff took part in Exposfest and it got signed there through PastPros.

I have long been a member of #BringBacktheBrown, so I decided to change the color of the dates.  Also I am sorry but I think my cynicism for this season is beginning to show.

Padrograph #1026

Michael Kelly was a non roster invitee to the Padres major league camp.  He was drafted by the Padres in 2011.  He pitched in AAA last year and right now he is in San Antonio at AA.  I talked to Michael a few years ago when he was playing for the Eugene Ems a few years ago.  I mailed this to him at the beginning of Spring Training and got it back today.  I have now received 33% of this batch of cards back.  Still haven't heard from Jered Weaver, Trevor Cahill, Johnny Washington and Alan Zinter.
