I'm a huge Jerry Sands fan, which is no secret if you've followed along here long enough. Even with his trade to the Boston Red Sox in a deal that brought Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford, and Nick Punto to LA, I've not given up on collecting Sands' cardboard, especially his Dodgers' hits.
The latest I acquired is one I had been after for ages. Sands has the above signature in 2011 TriStar Pursuit, and I was constantly getting outbid on them before moving on for a bit. The above eventually popped, and I was able to snag it for a great price, which turned out to be even better when the card arrived and I realized it was the blue parallel numbered out of 50 (34/50). The auction also included the below four rookie cards.
Overall, I'm pleased with the pickup. More pleased than I am with the fact that Jerry is no longer around.
