2022 Blake Snell Autograph Count: 2

Once upon a time, I posted 30 different Blake Snell autographs in a single calendar year. This year, I am hoping that I might be able to add another one before the end of the year. Snell is signing fewer cards as a Padre, but I am just having trouble getting excited about collecting his newer autographs. For my latest Blake Snell autograph I am looping back to add an autograph of the pitcher with the Rays. 

I actually have the base version of this card, which is a 1986 insert out of the 2021 Topps set. This is the black parallel, which is serial numbered to 150 copies. Not a very expensive autograph and it has been on my radar for some time.  

Here is the card.

I love the black borders on the 1986 Topps design. The on-card signature is nice touch too. Really not much to say here. It's a good looking card. 

Here is the back.  

The standard CONGRATULATIONS message from Topps with the serial number at the bottom of the card. Overall, I am really happy to add this Snell autograph to my collection.  


  1. Does he still have a lot of Rays autos for you to chase?

    1. There are not very many left. Mainly Panini cards. I am not chasing down all of the parallels.

  2. I've held off on picking up a Snell autograph with him in a Padres jersey. Was hoping to wait it out and pick one up cheap. But if he's not signing as much, that's going to mess with my plans.

    1. I have actually seen several of his Padres autographs end for less than $5 on Ebay recently. I think his performance has caught up to his baseball cards.
