These three beauties were among the many other surprises left by my postman this afternoon.

2005 Prime Patches Hideo Nomo

This card is so awesome, so beautiful, so much better than any other GU card of Nomo that I currently have. It took a long time to finally hammer out a deal to acquire this, but it’s now mine.

2006 SP Authentic By the Letter Chad Billingsley

For some reason, I can never find Chad Billingsley BTL patches at a reasonable price on eBay. So when the opportunity came to divest myself of a totally unwanted gold refractor autograph in exchange for these cards and others, I had to capitalize!

For what it’s worth, I doubt I’ll be finding Matt Kemp’s 08 SPa BTL patches at any better of a rate. I did manage, however, to acquire “LAROCHE,” with most of them costing less than 10 dollars.

Add another autograph card to my collection. Only James Loney, Clayton Kershaw, and Blake DeWitt remain of the Dodgers’ young stars that I don’t have an autograph card.

  1. Well, the first two cards don’t appeal to me at all. But the last one is a great one.

    Nice new look on the blog!

  2. i can tell you why it’s difficult to find Billingsley BTL patches. Before eBay took bidder names out there was one bidder who always seemed to bid on Chad’s cards-particularly this one. The bidder used the name “chadbillingsley” I don’t know if it was actually the Dodger hurler, but he was clearly a big fan.

  3. That’s interesting. But really, what would you want with that many BTL patches? Souvenirs, I guess. But you’d think someone close to, or Chad himself would have better, cooler stuff than that anyway!
