Default My Small Dustin Pedroia Auto PC.

There seem to be a lot of these threads lately so I thought I'd add mine. I only collect autos, and generally only buy on-card for a good price. Here is what I have so far... sorry for the bad pics...

A couple of slabs:





4/5...



T206 and Goodwin...



57/59...



/200...



Base, /300, /99...



Tier 1 /25, A&G, Prime Cuts /25...



Bat /9, Jersey /18...



2013 /50, 2012 /5...



Papelbon /25, Crawford /15...



2011 Tier 1 /25, 2011 Marquee /5...



Sig Stars /100, SP /125, Topps RC Raw...



Five Star /25, Sterling /10...



1/3, 4/18...



And finally... I really, really, really, really, really hope they make this card. Two of my favorite players of all-time...



Thanks for looking. If you have anything you think I'd like to add, PM me.

Very nice collection. The only one I have in my collection right now is a triple with Sandberg and Kinsler.

That Nomar/Pedroia Dual auto will be a nice card. That is if they ever make it

The one from 2011 TTT? I like that card, but just wish it weren't stickers. Very hard to do though with a triple auto.

That is the one. I wish it wasn't stickers as well, but not much you can do about it with Triple Threads.

Yeah, as you can see I have a few stickers mixed in... mostly because I either got them very cheaply or pulled them from packs.

I am considering condensing this collection. From 30 down to maybe 15 or even 10. I'll only buy cards if they are an upgrade to one in the collection... maybe by scarcity or just general attractiveness...

I'd like something that is more focused and easy to display some day. The accumulation is fun but at some point it starts to feel empty.

I love watching Pedroia play but HATE his autograph. All of mine I have pulled, traded for or have been given. I just can't bring myself to purchase one for myself.

Yeah, I hear you on that. The one thing I will say for it is that despite being ugly, it has been fairly consistent through the years. The worst is the people who don't care and just scribble... and the scribble is never consistent.

Also, I'll be out your way for the week after the 4th. Can't wait.

Hate the team but I love the Nomar. Hoping one of his base autos go down cheap that I can snag.

Thank you.

Compared to some people on here? Yeah, I consider 30 cards to be fairly small.

Thanks guys. A work in progress. I think now I am going to focus less on quantity and more on quality. Start replacing pieces instead of adding.

If you ever want to add a 2004 Donruss Elite Extra Edition auto. to your collection they have black and blue ink auto variations. The blue ink autos are pretty rare if I remember correctly.

Some day I will probably get one. I just hate stickers and think the cards are quite ugly as well. I guess I need one to make this a real Pedroia collection, but I just much prefer on-card autos. Something about the mental image of a player signing massive sheets of stickers just rubs me the wrong way.

That redemption would be awesome. I'm not the biggest Pedroia fan, but a Pedroia/Nomar dual auto is pretty fantastic.

I also love the 2013 Museum Archival Autos. I don't know what it is about them, but I think they're one of the best looking sets I've seen in awhile. I still have my fingers crossed that Yu signs his...my Yu Sepia parallel would look pretty sweet next to my Machado Sepia.

Great stuff man! If I happen across any Pedroia's I'll let you know!

Thanks. I was watching a Pedroia Sepia but it went for a silly number. Hopefully another will pop up at some point. That would definitely be an upgrade over some of these cards.

I am only going to allow myself to upgrade at this point, not expand. Whenever I buy one, I have to sell one as well.

And I don't know how anyone can dislike Pedroia

Lol, I wish I had the same restraint. I see something I want and buy it...then sit at home wondering how I have 200+ cards I need move. I think last night alone, I finally sat down and went through some of the stuff sitting on my desk...60 autos later I was too tired/bored/hungry to finish updating my inventory.

It's only going to get worse when my Inception case comes in...

It is a new thing for me. I hope it works.

Only replace/upgrade Pedroia autos. And then I have a few other guys whose chrome auto or PSA 10 RC I want in my collection as well... Lester, Ellsbury, Buchholz, Pedro, Ortiz, Boggs, Rice, Dewey, Fisk, Yaz, etc. I own a lot of these already but I am going to focus on upgrading the quality or which parallel I own. Like I have a BGS 9.5/10 Lester Chrome Refractor auto. I am keeping my eyes peeled for a reasonably priced Blue 9.5/10. Once I procure that I will sell the refractor.

This is my new collection plan. Quality over quantity. Easier to keep track of and display that way.

In the quality over quantity department... added these two this week...

2/5...



And I like the GQ autos...



I think these will replace the sig stars and maybe one of the Turkey Reds.

You have good taste sir! Those are two of my favorite auto sets. I don't know why, but those GQ autos just look so damn nice!
