... and I come to what possibly could be the final Hanley card I will ever acquire for my collection as he no longer plays for the Dodgers and I have my fill of autographs of the man.
With the acquisition of this card I also finally finish my 2015 Heritage project as this was the final one I needed for my black chrome collection. I had all the big names already but Hanley remained elusive as I was never willing to pay a premium for a card that books for $25, as it seemed everyone else did, even if it meant my project remained incomplete by 1.
This one popped up on the bay with a BIN of $20 with a best offer option. Last time I saw one it was the exact same thing and after I sent in my offer someone swooped in and purchased it at the seller's asking price. Once again I sent in an offer which most would consider a low ball total but a few hours later I was informed I won and the project was finally complete.
I now add the final Hanley piece to the collection. It was a great couple of years but with Seager here now I think the Dodgers will do just fine at shortstop for the next 10 years. Good luck in Boston Hanley as you patrol ... left field/first base? Ha Ha.
Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.
