2012 Topps Five Star Terry Pendleton Autograph

There are very few major Cardinals players that I have watched during my lifetime that I haven't been able to find a certified autograph of at some point.  Sometimes I have had to wait awhile to find them, but they eventually turn up.  The newest addition to my collection would fit into that category.  Terry Pendleton is probably most noted as the Braves third basemen prior to the arrival of Chipper Jones and the winner of the 1992 National League MVP.

Pendleton actually spent the first seven season of his career, 1984 to 1990, with the Cardinals where he was apart of the "Whiteyball" era teams.  While Pendleton wasn't a huge threat to steal bases, or run, he was a great defensive third basemen and was a solid run producer at times batting behind Jack Clark.  He later played for the Braves, Marlins, Reds,  and Royals.  Pendleton has a certified autograph in the 2004 Topps Fan Favorites set and is a great in-person signer, but I just never managed getting around to find one of his autographs.  Late last week I ran into a fellow collector who was looking to trade this gem for the new Five Star release and couldn't pass up this card.

I also got this Jeromy Burnitz autograph as an additional card in the trade.  I was pretty happy to score an autograph of the Brewers former right-fielder.
