Padrographs #1056-1064

I recently sent eighteen customs I made to an autograph dealer I know and last week I got nine of them back.  The top three are amazing uniform transformations by Travis Peterson, aka Punk Rock Paint.
Paul Siebert is part of another set of brothers that played for the Padres.  His brother Sonny played for the Padres in 1975 and Paul pitched in four games in 1977.
Mike Fiore finished his major league career in 1972 with 7 games in San Diego and 17 games in St. Louis.
Steve Fireovid made his major league debut in 1981 with the Padres against the Pirates.
Patrick Kivlehan made his major league debut with the Padres in 2016 before being waived.  The Reds got him off the waiver wire and he played in 115 games for the Reds in 2017.
Evan Scribner pitched in 10 games for the Padres in 2011.  He  played for the Mariners in 2017.
David Lee pitched in 41 games for the Padres in 2001 between two years in Colorado and two years in Cleveland.
Cody Decker made his major league debut for the Padres in 2015, he played in the Mets organization in 2017.
Dusty Coleman played in 27 games for the Padres in 2017 after making his major league debut with the Royals in 2015.
Ricky Stone pitched in 27 games for the Padres in 2004.

Now here are the backs for the nine cards.

Padrographs #1052-#1055

Memo Luna played for the Padres in 1952 & 1953, he pitched in 77 games for the Padres.  He did well enough that he earned some time in the major leagues in 1954 for the St. Louis Cardinals.  He pitched in 2/3 of an inning vs the Reds.  This is a custom card that I made based on a 1952 card. 

Brandon Maurer pitched for the Padres in 2015, 16 and part of 2017.  He was traded with Ryan Buchter and Trevor Cahill to the Royals. 

Ryan Buchter pitched for the Padres in 2016 and this year before being traded to the Royals with Brandon Maurer and Trevor Cahill.

Luis Urias was signed as an amateur international free agent before the 2013 season.  He has played up to the AAA level in the Padres organization.

Padrograph #1052

Tony Hawk was born and raised in San Diego.   This is his second appearance on a card as a fan of the Padres. Someone in St. Louis got this signed when Tony was there for the opening of a skatepark. This is the second first pitch card in my collection, the other is Agness Mckee.
