Tigers Gallery Checklist: 2009 SP Legendary Cuts

Hey, how about a gallery of 2009 SP Legendary Cuts? Sure this is a bit out of the blue, but it's on the list, so why not?

Base Set It's small and it's sweet. I'm not sure what got into the card companies over the last six months, but there has been a serious stamp theme going on. I'm not sure if this one was first or if it was Topps' legends inserts, but either way, it has carried all the way into 2010 Heritage. Anyway, I got Curtis' card way back when and thought it was a winner. I'm holding that line, with my only disappointment being that the base set, such as it is, is only four cards, and the Kaline is short printed at that.







#30 Magglio Ordonez

#84 Curtis Granderson

#85 Miguel Cabrera



#116 Al Kaline (#/550)


Relics There are a few relic subsets going on here, and it seems to me like the "Legendary Memorabilia" group are the nicer ones for some reason, big head shots maybe? I'm not sure. I'm showing off a range of parallels the Green (#/125) for Gibson and the Red (#/75) for Morris. There are a total of five parallels in this subset, totally unnecessarily, I might add. The other relic cards are all fine but let's be honest, Legendary Cuts is all about...Legendary Cuts. We'll get there, I promise.

Cut Signatures Ok. These are the big winners here. Sure, your odds of actually pulling something like these are slim slim slim, but they're out there. The funny thing about cuts is that they're really not that special. Is there a reason that the cut is in a card? Does the card make it more special? I don't know. What I will say is that this set does a great job of procuring some incredible signatures and gives them to us in an accessible format. Also, there are dual signatures each a 1/1 that are really something.

On to the nitty gritty, there are a ton of these. I'm going to throw order to the wind and show the images of what's been out there since I've started looking. Then I'm going to use the Grand Cards logo to fill out the checklist just so you can see how extensive it is. Here we go...

  1. The cut autos are really nice. I am hoping to find many of these for my Detroit Tigers autograph collection. I recently purchased the Birdie Tebbetts and Hoot Evers off ebay.
