As I've probably mentioned a time or two in the past, I'm not the world's biggest autograph hound, but even I couldn't pass this one up. And after missing several other autographed cards in the past week (I held to my $10 max, but some people still got really good deals thanks to my restraint) I was really surprised to win this one, even with the poorly chosen title. This is #805 in my collection out of the possible 1930 different Dave Winfield cards deemed worthy of recognition by Beckett.
Oddly, the seller found it necessary to include his own certificate of authenticity, as if that provided on the reverse of the card, printed there by the manufacturer, weren't assurance enough. Though, considering the credibility of the gentleman who's name is found on the back of the card, perhaps it was warranted. As the U-2 folks say, "In God We Trust. All Others We Monitor." Thanks, Mr. Zippo!
Once I build up enough credit in my CheckOutMyCards account, I'll pull the trigger to ship the 7 I have waiting in my account there, but until they're in my hands and in my Winfield binder, they're not officially part of my collection. So #806-812 are "to be announced" to quote TV Guide.
