I did get a lot done in our yard this weekend. I move six wheelbarrows of dirt twice a week from the front yard to the back. We are deconstructing a berm in the front yard and building up a garden in the back yard.
But over the past week I have picked up three new Padrographs. #1201 Joey Cantillo, drafted by the Padres in the 16th round in 2017. Has played up to Fort Wayne. The card is from 2020 Bowman and I picked it up on eBay.
#1202 Mike Phillips, came from St. Louis in a trade that saw him, Terry Kennedy, John Littlefield, Al Olmsted, Kim Seaman, Steve Swisher and John Urrea for Rollie Fingers, Gene Tenace, Bob Shirley and Bob Geren. Mike played in fourteen games for the Padres in 1981 before being bought by the Expos in May. Kudos to Punk Rock Paint for the uni transformation and help from Gavin at Baseball Card Breakdown. I got the signature through PastPros.
#1203, George Hinshaw, was drafted by the Padres in the eleventh round of the 1980 draft. He played in thirteen games for the Padres in 1982 and 1983. Someone had the signature on an index card on Ebay so I bought that and designed the card around it. I had attempted to send him a custom 1982 card a couple of times but it never came back.
I would like to thank Kerry at Cards on Cards for sending me some Padres, a black Alan & Ginter Gwynn and some top of the class Wil Meyers. I got consolation prizes from Johnny's Trading Spot for the BFG. In the sadness over Friday morning news I forgot to play.
