Behold: Sandy Koufax autograph!

Here's a big name I had been wanting to score an autographed card of for a long time. A nice belated year-end bonus check from work helped make that dream come true for me.

Sandy Koufax 2015 Topps Tribute To The Victors die-cut auto /30


I believe this card comes from the "special edition" of 2015 Tribute, which was like the "re-do" after the product was originally recalled due to the autographs not staying on the cards very well because of the finish used. This acetate card seems like it'd be more at home in High Tek, but it's origins aren't all that important to me.. just that it's mine now! :)


A terrific card of a legendary all-time great and I love it!

I also got a somewhat-corresponding card I'm equally enamored with, but I'll save that one for tomorrow's post.

    1. Another thing I like about it is that the shape sorta reminds me of the logo of one of my favorite bands, Rocket From The Crypt. lol

  2. My Sandy auto is on a regular old 1961 Topps card. I prefer that to Christmas-ornament stuff like this. But welcome to the club!
