custom card signature

 I recently saw that an autograph dealer I knew had gotten some signatures from 1969 Padre Leon Everitt.  I had made a card front of Leon awhile back and I shared it with the dealer.  I made a back for the card also, utilizing a 1969 card back and overlaying some stuff on it. I sent them off and then they got sent to Leon who signed them and asked for some for himself.  So I made 9 more that went to Leon Everitt.
I have made some more that I am going to try and get to other players.

Newly accquired cards and whoe boy did my want list get bigger

The Padres have been more aggressive this off season than any I can remember and we are welcoming all kind of new guys.  It will probably be awhile since they have Padres cards and Topps probably has lots of stickers of a couple of them they will be able to slap on Padres cards when they come out.
I have acquired a few more signed Padres cards.  Jordan Paroubeck someone got signed during the Fall Instructional league and put it on ebay.  Turner who will go to the Nationals sometime next year, Zech Lemond and Michael Gettys were all in the Bowman Draft Picks set.  There is one other Padres draft pick that I can't afford, that is Johnny Manziel, Cleveland Browns quarterback.
