COTW for 2/10/08: 2005 Sweet Spot Classic Dale Murphy Sweet Spot Signatures #MU

One of my collecting goals is to have autographs of all of the Braves legends. I've got my Aaron, Neikro, Pendelton, Glavine, Smoltz, Maddux, Chipper and still need a Spahn, Matthews and of course the ultimate would be if I could somehow get a Babe Ruth, even though he was with the Braves at the very end of his career. But up until last week, I didn't have a Dale Murphy. The greatest Braves player in the 80's, somehow Murphy had always eluded me. I came across this card on eBay and got it for around $10. Very cool card and a very cool auto. This is also my first Sweet Spot Signatures card and I find it to be even more impressive in person than just the picture. However, I don't know if I'll be buying an $125 tin of these any time soon when I can just get the autograph I want for 10% or less of the price. But then again, you never know.

Sweet card. I have been sending a lot of autograph requests to Braves players recently. Haven't gone for too many of the bigger names yet. I sent to Murphy years ago and never heard a thing back.

Nice! That's a great looking card. I finally got a Murphy auto this Christmas. Once I get my camera working I need to show it off.
