the issues of fading and bleeding autographs in the otherwise outstanding 2007 upper deck sweet spot classic set is well documented. it is a shame that some great signatures and combo signatures are so badly ruined. steve garvey was included in the set, and i've acquired most of the variations of his cards. several months ago, i added a couple more to my collection.
this first one was advertised as a silver stitch gold ink signature.
the other version in the lot that i needed was this blue ink leather signatures card
four years after that set was released, panini included garvey in their 2011 playoff contenders set with a similar sweet spot autograph
here's hoping your collections stay strong and your autographed cards don't fade away.
