upgrades and additions

These are a combination of customs that I got signed through an autograph dealer, a custom from Gavin at BCB  that I got signed through the  mail, and some through the mail big league request that came back quickly.

Bob Patterson, pitched in three games in September of 1985.  One of my customs, that I got signed through a dealer.

Sam Perlozzo, played in two games in September of 1979, playing in his final major league game on my 22nd birthday. Another of my customs signed through the dealer.

Horace Clarke, played in 42 games for the Padres in 1974.  He and Lowell Palmer were purchased from the Yankees in May of 1974.  I don't know why Horace signed the card twice.  Another of my customs, an upgrade from a previous custom.

Ken Reynolds, pitched in 19 games for the Padres in 1976.  This is an upgrade of a previous custom I had done. I think I will keep the previous custom in  the collection.

I have decided to add signatures from 1936-1968 Padres to my collection if I happen across them,  maybe I can find a Pete Rose card with the Padres.

George "Catfish" Metkovich, appeared in 24 games for the Padres in 1957.  This card and the other two PCL Padres were purchased from a dealer on ebay.

Dolan Nichols, pitched in 41 games for the PCL Padres in 1957.  He also played for the Cubs and Portland in 1957.

Don Dillard played in 95 games for the Padres in 1959.

Matt Kemp is currently playing for the Padres.  The 2015 & 16 took about a week and a half to come back from Peoria.

Melvin Upton, Jr. is also currently playing for the Padres, both of his cards also took about a week and a half to come back.

I currently have 941 different Padres cards signed.
