I realize that I have been gone a long time from the blogosphere. I still make it a point to read many of your blogs every day. The Padres haven't done much to get me excited this season and Topps just keeps using the same guys on autographed cards. I would like to see them use more guys with fewer autographs per guy. I don't think I will make it to 1,000 Padrographs this season, but I will be close enough to make it early next season. Here a couple that have gotten me closer.
Dusty played in 9 games for the Padres in 2000. This was the only picture I could find of him anywhere and made the custom and got the card signed through an autograph dealer.
Brett has played in 170 games for the Padres last year and this year and seems to be an important utility player for them. I picked this up on ebay.
