I won an auction last week for a pair of Jerry Sands Game-Used Memorabilia. The cards aren’t him pictured in a Dodgers uniform but instead it’s the minor league affiliate, Chattanooga Lookouts.

Jerry Sands was a 25th round draft pick in 2008 by the Dodgers and made his MLB Debut on April 18, 2011. He doubled in his first major league at-bat against Tim Hudson. On June 9, the Dodgers optioned Sands to Triple A Albuquerque.

2011 Topps Pro Debut Jerry Sands #MM-JS

I think this product is awesome because collectors can receive players during their minor league stints before they make it to the majors. It makes it more exciting to collect players in their minor league uniforms instead of just the Dodgers uniform.

There is also a Dee Gordon game-used memorabilia from the same product that I’m trying to get my hands on.

I will be keeping one of the Sands for my personal collection and the other one is for trade. Looking for Dodgers in return.

2011 TriStar Pursuit Kyle Russell #61 (It’s numbered 055/111)
I bought this off ebay a couple days ago. It’s my first autograph of Kyle, but it looks like it’s starting to fade a little.  
Kyle Russell was drafted in the 3rd round (93rd overall) of the 2008 MLB Draft. He played his collegiate ball at the University of Texas.

In 2009 with the Class-A Great Lakes Loons, he hit .272 with 26 HR and 102 RBI in 133 games.

In 2010 with the Class-A (advanced) Inland Empire 66ers, he hit .354 with 16 HR and 53 RBI in 53 games before being promoted to the Double-AChattanooga Lookouts. In 76 games with the Lookouts, he hit .245 with 10 home runs.

He’s still currently playing with the Chattanooga Lookouts.
