I haven't received or picked up any new Padrographs since last week, so I thought I would take you back to where it all began.  Sometime in 1986 when Topps cards came out I started sending cards to the members of the Padres asking for signatures on their cards.  Out of the 29 cards that made up a team set in 1986 I would guess that I had 20 of them signed. I have made roster mosaics of every year of the Padres which are made of every signed card.  These are only the players that actually played in 1986.  Since I only keep one card of each player some of the cards from the '86 Topps set have been traded away.  1986 is one of the few years that I have everyone who played that year on a signed card.  The Mark Wasinger card is a custom that I did a couple of years ago.  There are two members of this team that are no longer with us.  Tony Gwynn and Eric Show.

The 1986 Topps baseball card design is one of my favorites when it comes to signatures. Those six you kept are fantastic!

Cool autos. Great that you were able to get those through the mail.
