New Kemp, Trumbo and Uribe Autos

A few weeks ago I got an email from Matt about making trade. Matt writes the blog MC's Autograph Signings and he's also one of the better autograph hounds out here in SoCal. 

When Matt asked me about making a trade, he listed a few things that were available. There were a lot of items that caught my eye, but the one that stood out the most was a 2011 All-Star ball signed by Matt Kemp. I knew I'd have to come strong to get my hands on that one.

After days of back and forth negotiating, we were finally able to come to an agreement. I got the Kemp AS ball, a Mark Trumbo sweet spot ROMLB and a Juan Uribe sweet spot ROMLB. I'm sure you're asking why I would want a Juan Uribe autograph. Yes, Uribe is garbage, one of the worst players ever to put on a Dodger uniform. Like I've said before, my collection is about Dodger autos, so if they've ever worn the uni, I want their sig. I tried many times to get Uribe's auto this year with no success, and now I don't have to worry about it anymore.

Not only does Uribe suck at baseball, his signature sucks too

I want to thank Matt again for the trade. I love my newest Matt Kemp auto! To see Matt's end of the trade, click here.

  1. Nice trade. It reminds of the real life blockbuster trade between the Blue Jays and the Marlins.

  2. I will trade you a Kershaw Ginter auto for the Uribe baseball. That will give me the chance to destroy the Uribe ball.

  3. Dude, I would absolutely love to have a Uribe ball. Haha. He, for some reason, also happens to be one of my girlfriend's favorite players.

    Uribe is still a little better than Andruw jones was as a dodger. And if we trade him we all know he's gonna have a comeback player of the year season. That's just how it is.

    1. It always happens. I don't think Uribe is going anywhere though. No team will touch that contract even if it is the final year.

  5. Hey, I need Andruw Jones for my Yankees collection, lol.

    Great pick ups Josh. That Dodger PC must be looking real good.
