In Which I Surpass 450 Unique Matt Kemp Cards (With 4 New Autos!)

Here are the final four cards to enter my collection from that large purchase I made in 2015 off of my good friend Alex from Chavez Ravining. I was able to add four new Matt Kemp John Hancocks to my PC and those four push my collection of the former Dodger great to over 450 unique cards with 67 sigs of the current Padre!

We'll begin with 2007 Topps Co-Signers and this dual auto of The Bison with former Dodger outfielder Franklin Gutierrez. The design is solid and I can live with the sticker-graph. Early Mattycakes' autographs are always welcome in my collection.

From the same set comes Kemp and Chris Iannetta. I liked Iannetta as a sneaky fantasy guy back in the day and thought he should have been better than he ended up being, especially at a position where offense and plate discipline are lacking.

This beauty is from 2007 Topps Moments & Milestones which had about a billion 1/1s if memory serves. I already have the Black /40 parallel of this Matty signature so adding the base is pretty cool.

Finally we have the sticker dump that was 2012 Upper Deck SP Signature Edition Baseball. It's not the worst design ever but I'm damn sure happy I didn't have to chase this card.

Thanks a bunch again Alex!
