I've created this post in an effort to keep better track of my Diamondbacks autograph collection.
The other day I stumbled on the D-Backs all-time roster on MLB.com. I exported the list into Excel and tried to figure out how many players I had autographs from. While doing so, I had an idea. Why not turn it into an ongoing blog post?
The purpose of this is to see how many former and current D-Backs players we have autographs from on a baseball card featuring them in a D-Backs baseball card. Kind of like Ryan's Great Orioles Autograph Project but on a much smaller scale.
I've outlined a few rules to go along with our new project.
In order to make it onto this list, I have to have posted the card on the blog already. Expect a steady flow of D-Backs posts while I try to get caught up.
If it's not a D-Backs card, it's not part of this collection. There's a ton of guys who played in Arizona who didn't get a card featuring them on the Diamondbacks. That's a shame but that means they won't be included in this project.
Non-2008 Topps cards take precedence over 2008 Topps cards for this project. Actually I haven't added any 08 Topps stuff to this list yet.
Cards signed in person take precedence over certified autos.
I'll make updates as we post new cards. Enjoy!
