2001 Upper Deck Legends Of New York Carl Erskine Auto/Jersey

One of my favorite Dodgers of all time is Carl Erskine. I meant to post this card last month on his birthday, and it completely slipped my mind.

Oisk played his entire career with the Dodgers,  from 1948-1959. You can check out his bio here.

This is a 2001 Upper Deck Legends of New York autographed, game used jersey SDJ-CE.  The blue on-card signature looks amazing on any Dodger card, but it really stands out on this one. I think UD did a great job on the design of these cards.


  1. Josh, What a great card! Carl Erskine is one of the nicest guys I've ever met (while at Vero Beach). Coincidentally, I just posted about him over at Opinion of Kingman's Performance.

  2. Evan - Really? Wow, that's weird. I've got to hear about your trips to Vero.

  3. I didn't even know there were auto-relics in this set, haha. Cool.

  4. Arno - I'm not sure what other Dodgers have auto/jersey cards. I've seen Dave Winfield and Mickey Rivers Yankee cards though. And I think I remember a Tom Seaver as well. I have to look into that.
