My project of compiling a set of Bundy family "1989 Pro Set" autographs took another step towards completion with the recent addition of David Faustino.To refresh your memory, I ponied up for a Leaf autograph of Ed O'Neill last year after long pining away for an "Al Bundy football card autograph", and later made a matching custom overlay for a Christina Applegate auto card I picked up. And now I've gone and done the same for Mr. Faustino.
The card ran me about the ol' "price of a blaster" shipped and the seller even threw in the like-new one-touch. Also worth noting that the card is serial-numbered out of 200 on the back but the listing neglected to mention it. Works for me.
Now the elephant in the room is Katey Sagal as Peg. Here's what eBay currently has available, sorted by cheapest:
Yep, the cruel irony is that the least-expensive of her auto cards all horizontal, on-card autographs... which under normal circumstances I would much prefer over any stickergraph. But for this particular project, a horizontal card would just be too awkward to try morphing into a 1989 Pro Set card. She does have some stickergraphs on the market that would work, though, so I'll just have to have some patience for one to show up at a decent asking price. Hopefully that doesn't take too long and I'm able to wrap up this project soon.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
Katey only has 2 autos on comc, 1 at 50 the other 100, geez.ReplyDelete
Non-sports autos are a bear, especially for fan favorites like the MWC cast. (I'm planning a post about some celeb signature cards soon) Your Faustino looks great with the Pro Set border, and I hope you're able to secure a Sagal soon.ReplyDelete
Best of luck landing that horizontal signed card of Sagal. Loved her in Sons of Anarchy... and of course Married with Children.ReplyDelete
We'll be rooting for the MWC completion!ReplyDelete
Surprisingly, Katey's autographs haven't really jumped since the boom got going. I was looking for one 4-5 years ago, and this is what they were selling for then, too.ReplyDelete
