Card of the Day - 2013 Topps Five Star : Fred McGriff Silver Signatures Autograph Blue Parallel (21/25)

The crime dog finally make his first appearance in my collection. As a former Dodger he was always on my wish list for an autographed ball but he was on the list so long that I stopped collecting signed balls and moved to cards and never acquired his autograph. Till now.

Though I wanted to have Mr. McGriff's autograph while he was dressed in Dodger blue I knew that was probably going to be a fruitless endeavor. I did research for that for about a week and nothing ever came up so I shifted my focus to just getting his autograph and with that I turned my eye to my favorite non chrome brand, Five Star.

I love silver signatures and then coupled with a blue background only makes this card better. For some reason this card books at $50 which no way was I going to fork over for but at 80% off of that? Sure, why not? No action on the auction and I was the one and only person to put a bid on this card and had it in my hands within a week.


Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.



  1. 80% off of $50? Ugh, Math....... $10 Right? Awesome deal!

    Awesome card though, and I do love the silver signatures from five star as well!

    1. Right place right time. As u know off season is best time to score deals.
