Matt Kemp, Chad Billingsley, James Loney: A Triple Auto, i.e. One Of These Things Is Not Like The Other.

I was very, very surprised to win the below card from eBay for the price I did. I mean, I realize it is infested with the James Loney bug but still, Matt Kemp autos of any kind rarely can be had for any sort of steal nowadays. I've wanted one of these bad boys for a while and now I can say I am finally the proud owner of a dual auto of Kemp and Chad Billingsley.

Numbered 50/50, it hails from UD SP Authentic Sign of The Times Triple Signatures. I believe Kemp and Kershaw are on a card from the same set or a set like it, so perhaps one day I can hit the motherload and acquire that gem. It's a phenomenal addition to my Bison PC and is one of my favorite Matty John Hancocks even with Loney front and center. The on-card aspect doesn't hurt.


  1. Nice pick up. Can't have enough Kemps

  2. Too bad for that Loney. Haha. I believe I've expressed my distaste for him to you before.

  3. Matthew- Indeed!

    Arno- Haha, I don't remember discussing it with you but I'm
    always game for Loney ripping.

    Oh, and damn Blogger for not showing the picture of the card in the post preview.
