On Saturdays I will be featuring my roster mosaics. I did these to see whose signature I was missing from each years active rosters. This will take almost a year as there are 50 seasons of Padres to cover. In 1969, The Padres inaugural year, there were four-two different players on the roster. I have all but two signatures for 1969, Dick Kelley and Roberto Pena. Dick Kelly I have a signed index card and will be customizing the 1972 card to insert that. The Roberto Pena card has a signed version on eBay for $135, an amount I have never paid for a card, signed or unsigned. There are six customs that I made and one that I found on eBay. The Francisco Libran card was on eBay and the design is from the Topps website. Joe Niekro, John Sipin and Sonny Ruberto are customs I made and inserted cuts into. Chris Krug and Leon Everitt I got signed through private signings and the Van Kelly card I tracked him down in North Carolina and sent it to him.
Well after I wrote this I made an offer on the Roberto Pena card and it was accepted. I still haven't spent over a hundred dollars on a card.
Question for you: Should I bounce around through the years or just do them in order?
