Happy 60th Topps, From Matt Kemp.

I've had the pleasure of meeting Matt Kemp three times and each time has been an enjoyable experience. It was thus no surprise to me when Kemp was included in the Topps 60th Anniversary Autograph Issue subset in which players not only signed their respective John Hancocks but also wished Topps a Happy 60th Anniversary, as you see below from Mattycakes on this beautiful auto from 2011.

I never thought I'd own one of these beauts, but a big drop in Kemp autograph prices made me rethink that position. I lost out on one of these and then didn't see another pop for quite some time before this copy, numbered 51/60, hit eBay. I didn't actually think I'd take it home but the bidding gods were behind me on that day and I landed my latest Bison hit. The silver really pops on the black background.


  1. Silver pen autos on black are always my favorite autos to collect. Great grab on this sweet card!

  2. Nice one grats ! So we were both in luck with a Panini redemption !!
