View Full Version : Unique Steve Garvey items to share?

My additions of late are few and far between, so I thought I would see if anyone has any really cool Steve Garvey items that they are willing to share a scan of? I know Al has that Topps puffy sticker prototype and the 80 tops test coin. I've seen and drooled over those time and time again. Any others? Older cards on top of cellos/racks, memorabilia, rare cards, etc?

At one time I had a prototype San Diego uniform made for Garvey, but never worn. It was from the mid-'80s I believe. It was tan with orange pinstripes, made by Sand Knit I think. They were never used, of course.

I traded it to a dealer in Orange County about 10 years ago. Sorry I don't have a picture.

This is likely his toughest Topps item. Carew too. Maybe not on Jackson.

This reminded me of a couple of jerseys that sold on ebay many years back. They were advertised as prototypes for a new San Diego Padres design that never made the cut. There were three different listed at the same time. All had no player name on the back, but each had the #6. I couldn't say for sure if the era was ever right, but it would seem too coincidental that #6 was selected if it were not Garvey's time frame with the team. They were made by Rawlings. I won 2 of the 3. If I remember, the coolest design in my opinion was the one I lost. Not sure if they are the real deal or not, but have never seen anything like them since. I know very little about authentic uniforms. Hell, these could even be from some high school team for all I know…

I have not thought about them for years, but broke them out to photograph.

I borrowed the image from Sterling but this was my consignment. It is an 8.5 x 11 premium handed out at Dodger Stadium the night Garvey moved into fourth place on the consecutive games played list. I was at the game. It has Garvey stats and pictures of the top three consecutive games played leaders on the back. I picked up several of them that night and still have one.

Thank you for the replies so far. Please keep them coming if you have anything unique.

David, I have the large display piece, as well as the signed balls to go with the promotion, but I think you beat me out of the large wiffle ball display box. I remember losing out on one on ebay. I do have the individual box fearing Garvey. I also understand there is a wiffle bat/ball combo with cards on them that might feature a Garvey disc among others, but have not seen one before.

Al, There are a couple variations for those LS cards as well. Some have to do with cropping, others have to do with the location of manufacturing.

ALR-bishop
12-28-2014, 07:33 AM
Curt--you are correct. I am not aware of any Garvey variants, other than the ones above. But some say made in Taiwan and others the Philippines. There are a bunch of cropping differences on the front of the Hershiser cards (plus a bull dog card variant), and some back color variants as well. There are different Eric Davis cards too. Are you aware of other Garveys ?

mrmopar
12-28-2014, 02:30 PM
Now that I look at them again, I guess the Dodger variant is simply a difference in the coloring. Both were printed in Taiwan. One is darker in both the picture and in the border colors.

For the Padre card, there is a cropping variation, but it relates to the location of production as well. There is also some color variations as well.

The Philippines card is more yellow and the signature is all within the yellow part of the background and no belt is seen. The Taiwan version has the bottom loop of the "S" in the signature into the green part of the background and you can see his belt.

OK - this complete set of 12 Steve Garvey Tips boxes is probably a bit tough to come by though certainly not unique, but I want to give a shout out to my teenage self for somehow choking down 12 boxes of raisin bran in one baseball season!

Nice. I don't believe I have completed the full box set. I lost out on a complete one at least once before on ebay, although I do have the complete clipped tip set.

Someone also sold on ebay several years back what I vaguely remember to be described as a wax proof type set. I lost out on it, but not sure if it was real or not. Never seen it resurface.

Hey, Curt! The wax proofs sound interesting. I remember boxes of cereal sometimes being wrapped in printed thin wax paper in the late 60s and early 70s (not sure why they did that with some boxes - distribution to humid markets?) but don't think that was something they still did in the late 70s. Can't think of any other reason why Post would print proofs on wax.

How about this Garvey Gafline? It should look familiar as well. I believe it was you who sold it to me a couple years back. If I am mistaken and it wasn't you, the seller had shared a pic of theirs on their blog and I took a shot in the dark and contacted the blogger to see if they'd sell and they just happened to have two! They were kind enough to sell me their duplicate. To this day I have yet to see another.

I have not see a Gafline Garvey offered for sale in a long time, but I would guess they are still out there somewhere...

I do not own this item!

The 1980 issue was not cataloged like the 81 issue. I still seek this and even missed one on ebay to another Garvey collector not too long ago. He sold me the rest of the set for what he spent, minus the Garvey, but my heart aches for the Garvey/Carew!! That is probably my top want, aside from those ultra rare and one off goodies like the puffy sticker prototype, test coin and such.

I do have the 81 issue though and have never seen another offered.

He was a great player and should be in the HOF.

IMO he, like several from his era, are left out due to the steroids inflated offensive stats immediately upon his retirement making his accomplishments seem less.

Now, in hind site of the steroid era, we can look back on his statistics and appreciate how great he was. I hope the veteran's committee votes him in one day.

I'll guess that they were the 2nd longest infield grouping of the 70s for the Dodgers?



No. They were never regulars on the same infield together.

OK, another try. Each man was the predecessor to the mainstay in that particular spot (Garvey took over for Buckner, Russell for Wills, etc)?

I have this painting of Garvey and his infield teammates that they have all signed.

Close enough.

Buckner was at 1B before Garvey

Lacy was at 2B before Lopes

Wills was at SS before Russell

Garvey was at 3B before Cey.

I finally dug out the package that introduced me to a game that I am not sure was ever actually made and sold. Check out the blog entry I did on it today.

I think this would be my only real oddball piece from Garvey. This isn't mine (didn't feel like digging mine out) but I have one of these Nestle Kwik canisters from back in the day. Not only is this one not mine but mine also lacks the autograph.

If that was not yours on ebay a few months back, someone else has one as well. I couldn't touch the asking price of the one offered, but that is a cool item and a pretty nice front to have.

I did get it off ebay and sounds about the same timeframe I picked it. had my eye on it for a while, as it was a crazy original asking price. think he started at $500 or so and after a while finally made an offer and picked it up for $150 or so...to this date I hadn't seen another one other prior or post pick up.

A 1971 "yellowless" Garvey Rookie. Now graded a 7 I believe

A 1971 Garvey Rookie autographed on the PSA slab then GAI graded the auto and slabbed the slab at my request.

Can't believe the amazing variety of Garvey material. Here's a nice vintage pinback --

Dug this one out. Have seen at least one other subject, Magic Johnson, on ebay. I assume this is from a So. Cal. newspaper, but unsure which one.

After viewing all of these cool Garvey items it "almost" makes me want to become a dual player collector instead of a single player collector! ;)
