Card of the Day - 2008 SP : Matt Kemp By the Letter Autograph " T " ( 26 / 50 )

With more letters now in hand than ones needed to complete the set the number of cards seen for sale seem to have dwindled as I don't see too many up for sale anymore. Once in awhile one pops up but it is usually for a letter I no longer need. Not the case on this one. I already had one "T" in hand and still needed a twin. With a print run of just 50 that means only a possible 25 sets cant be completed. 

A seller put this up on eBay with a buy it now auction for over $50. I so want to complete this set but not at a price that is way over book. Thankfully he had a best offer option but since he set his price so high to begin with I didn't know where he was willing to go. Back and forth for a couple of days finally landed me my second and final "T" but at a higher price than I wanted to shell out. Thankfully once again that I am also a seller and have extra books, balls and such to sell to compensate for the costs of these cards. 

Card arrived a week or so later and now sits along side the other "T". I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel for this project but it will be a tough road ahead with so few options left.  

26 / 50


  1. Do you have enough to spell just his name?

    1. That's pretty good still. I'll be another set of eyes for you for that "E".
