Padrograph #1182, #1183 and #1184

#1182, Greg Page played three season in the minors for Pocatello and Salinas from 1988-1990.  He was one of the Padres replacement players, Jeremy of Topps Cards that never were made the fronts and then I made backs and sent them out.  I have gotten two back.  Greg also included some signed minor league cards.
#1183, Mike Hargrove, the Human Rain Delay played in fifty two games for the Padres in 1980.  I made an overlay for a Panini certified auto card for this card.  One of the most unusual autographs I have is one of Mike on the back of a Captain America action figure.  Friends used to take it with them on vacation and take pictures of it on the vacation.  One friend took it to spring training and was going to take a picture of Mike with it and he took it and signed it.  It was when he was managing the Mariners.  
#1184, Ramon Webster, played in 105 games for the Padres in 1970 and 1971.  I made the card and then bought an index card and combined the two.

Glad you got another replacement player!

The Captain America story is funny. I wonder what Hargrove was thinking while he was signing it?

I hope you end up dedicating a post to that Captain America figure one day. I'd love to see it.

That custom of Ramon Webster kind of reminds me of something that TriStar would put out, although their version wouldn't look nearly as interesting as yours.
