Spending the day with family today, so just a quick autograph post for Signature Sundays this week...
Pretty nice Bob Sadowski on-card autograph courtesy of 2015 Topps Heritage. I enjoy the "Real One" autographs in the Heritage line, featuring hard signed autos of some of the lesser-remembered players of yesteryear. This is a great, obscure autograph for my Red Sox collection, as Bob played just a single season with Boston in 1966, the final season of his 4-year MLB career in fact.
Because these autographs are based on actual vintage Topps cards, they include the full back from the originals as well. Much nicer than the generic "Congratulations, you've pulled an authentic autograph of..." backs we get so often these days.
I picked this card up on eBay all the way back in 2015 when this Heritage set was just out (yes, it takes me that long to get to featuring cards here sometimes). I appreciate it even more nowadays than I did back then, given that Sadowski passed away back in 2018 at age 80. Not a player the average Red Sox fan is familiar with most likely, but a solid autograph nonetheless!
That's a wrap for today, thanks for stopping by and enjoy your Sunday everyone!
Very cool right up and always nice to get a card of a player that not many know or remember.
Struck out five times in a game? Ouch. Not a friendly cartoon. Great card for your collection, though!
