By The Letter Encarnacion

A few weeks back I picked up this 2008 SP Authentic By the Letter autograph of Edwin Encarnacion. Numbered 1/99, I thought it would make a great addition to my Reds autograph album. I hadn't realized that Encarnacion didn't play the 2021 season and that he spent last year with the White Sox. I'm glad to add this former Red autograph to my collection.

And then there were 9

Last week I was able to track down two more cards I needed for my Votto Rookie Album project. Those two cards are the 2008 Upper Deck Documentary standard issue and gold parallel. There are 10 each of the 2008 Upper Deck Documentary cards in each version that depict Votto on the front of the card for a total of 20 cards but I only wanted one copy of each. I also wanted the card to be the same card number AND mention Votto in the short write-up on the back of the card. Luckily I was able to identify a card in the set to chase and it was icing on the cake that the Reds also won the game the card mentions. Now I just need 9 more cards to finish up this project.
