having a couple of generic "garvey" save ebay searches provides a glimpse in to the vast array of non-card collectibles that exist within the ephemera landscape and beyond. i was, at one time, hesitant to add non-card items to my steve garvey collection, but i have softened that stance over the years. i still have a line drawn somewhere, but it has migrated before and may again.
i mentioned the saved "garvey" ebay searches - the first items i am going to show in this post actually came about thanks to a different saved search in which i saw a 2012 dodger ticket stub that featured sandy koufax. the dodgers have, like other teams, issued tickets with active and retired players throughout the past decades. the earliest examples i recall seeing were in the 1990's. anyway, i figured there might be a garvey ticket from 2012, and found two.
i was also alerted to the existince of a 1979 dodger spring training schedule that featured garvey thanks to my saved ebay searches. i missed out on the first one i saw, but stumbled upon another in late december of last year
the last item for this post is this postcard-sized item
i also bought part of a steve garvey collection that included mostly oddball items in late december. i am still going through it and parsing out what i will keep and what i will let go. i'll be sure to share some of those items in the future, but in the meantime, be sure to check out fellow garvey super-collector mrmopar's blog for some great and unique garvey oddballs!
