there has been a recent uptick in rare-ish garvey cards being posted on ebay lately. in the span of a week, there were three different cut auto cards from 2014 leaf history of baseball listed. i wound up with one of them that features a nice blue signature on a black & white photo
i've seen these before, but hadn't picked one up until now. the cut auto is surrounded by 1970's references, including a misspelled thurman munson ("munsen") reference. the auto comes from a signed cachet, but not this one commemorating garvey's 1000th consecutive game,
nor is it this one from garvey's 1,118th consecutive game
which features billy williams during a postgame ceremony. this was a game that i attended, by the way. instead, the cut auto comes from this cachet
which fetes the same milestone event.
last, but not least, is a cut auto from 2016 panini prime cuts harmon killebrew card
