Padrographs #890, 1160 and 1161

 #890, Mike Dupree, appeared in 12 games for the Padres in 1976.  In 1977 he appeared on a four in one card with Denny Martinez and a couple of other guys.  When I saw he was doing a private signing I made this card and sent it in.

#1160, Ty France played in 34 games this year for the Padres while Fernando Tatis, Jr. was injured.  Manny slid over to short and Ty took over at third.  I saw him play in a couple of exhibition games in Seattle before the season.  I sent this to him during Spring Training and it was returned from El Paso.

#1161 Ian Kinsler, is a good baseball mind. I tried to get his signature on a custom card at the game in Seattle, but he completely ignored the 20 or 30 who were trying to get him sign stuff.  I purchased this card off of ebay.

The blue Sharpie on the 2019 Topps card really makes Kinsler's signature stand out. Great looking card.
