David Ortiz Relic, Patch, and Autograph Collection.

    Ortiz's final season is now underway with the Boston Red Sox, and I must say, it is a difficult thing to watch progress (as are the 2016 Boston Red Sox). I know that at the end I will be emotional, as I'm sure Ortiz will be as well. I will be in good company, though, as all of Red Sox Nation will be missing him. I'm just praying for an All-Star Game appearance, and a lot more homer-runs before he is officially retired.

    With a final season like Ortiz's in the works, this means that his sports card prices will be highly inflated. With this in mind, I will probably not be seeing many BIG additions to the Big Papi collection of mine. As of right now, these are most of the game-used (bat and jersey) and autographed cards of Ortiz that I have amassed over about six years of collecting his higher-end cards. I hope you enjoy seeing them just as much as I have enjoyed having them in my collection.


**Note** All cards pictured below contain game-used materials from David Ortiz's personally worn/used items as well as autographs personally signed by Ortiz himself. Most cards have serial numbered production run stamps that signify how many copies were produced. Nothing is for sale!











**NOTE**
The next two pictures of Ortiz cards feature pieces of event-used All Star Game festivities jersey from various All Star game elections.















**NOTE**
Bottom left card features game-used batting glove and is limited to a production run of only 16 copies.









**NOTE**
Both top cards are limited to one copy produced (1/1). Middle right sketch card is also limited to one copy (1/1). Middle left card and bottom card are both game-used button cards and are both limited to 5 copies. (/5)















These next couple cards below should be in my mailbox within the next week!

It doesn't get more impressive than that. Well, unless he was wearing pinstripes.
