Randy Jones was one of my favorite Padres, especially as I was able to watch him pitch at Jack Murphy Stadium, back when we lived in San Diego. I've always been on the lookout for a Colbert autograph, as the St. Louis native was one of the Padres' first studs, despite being an 18th round pick from Houston in San Diego's initial expansion draft. He was the first Padre to bat in an All-Star game (July 25th, 1972) and a week later (Aug. 1), he hit five homers, drove in 13 runs against the Braves in Atlanta.
The autograph collection includes a 2011 Topps Inception Autograph Alex Green (#124) (S/N 38/900), 2005 Topps Pristine Personal Endorsements Autographs Terrence Murphy (#TM) (S/N 1466/1500), 2011 Playoff Contenders Autograph RC Ryan Taylor (#174), 2007 SP Authentic DeShawn Wynn Autograph RC (#214), and a 2015 Panini Contenders Autograph RC Alonzo Harris (#263).
We're season ticket holders for the Iowa Wild hockey team and have enjoyed watching the 22-year old Swede mature as a defenseman. He's received two call-ups to Minnesota - two games in 2015-16 and once this season, and only has a +1 to show for his efforts. He currently has three goals, nine assists and 12 penalty minutes in 23 games at Iowa.
Gordon and Kaminsky both played for the University of Wisconsin, and Gordon is currently out with a hip injury. Just don't get me started about the Chargers' threatening to move to Los Angeles since they didn't get the vote to build a new stadium in San Diego. The NFL is not a fan-friendly league, in my book, and I'm getting rather tired of NFL teams moving out their teams away just because their "fans" aren't willing to be taxed for those fancy new stadiums they want. At least we don't have to worry about that with the Packers.
I have now amassed 602,530 points (good for more than $600 in free sports cards) with Check Out My Cards. I'll continue to help with their inventory challenges as long as they continue to post them and I have the free time to complete them. As far as I'm concerned, it's definitely a win-win situation.

After all, "...I've gotten much better." I think.

The giveaways end Sat., Sept. 24 (San Francisco Giants) as the Padres close out their home baseball season with a Padres Team Photo and 2017 Schedule, courtesy of the Mighty 1090 radio station. As a matter of fact, there will be a total of four different fireworks nights this season, as well as a lazer light show.
Among the most interesting giveaways include San Diego Padres electronics, including a Padres USB Charger on Sat., Sept. 10 (Colorado Rockies) and the Padres Ear Buds being given out on Sat., July 30 (Cincinnati Reds) by United Airlines. There’s also a $10 Coupon to the Padres Majestic Team Store on Sat., July 16 (San Francisco Giants).
