Of course, a little humor, observation and reflection goes a long way for me....
First, Alfredo Griffin always looked old, even when he was young (he was 26 on this card!)
|The start of the Toronto shortstop factory...|
Continuing on with the late 70's early 80's theme, Tom Underwood's '80 Topps card had a slight typo on the back:
|In '78 he led the Jays in K's. One part of the card says 139, another says 140.|
I'd forgotten that Glenallen Hill carved himself out quite a decent career in the majors. I will always remember him for a stint that he had on the DL because of a violent dream about spiders....
|I wasn't aware that he is the 1st base coach in Colorado|
I do remember that Devon White used to have problems keeping his equipment together:
|I wouldn't surprise me to find out that he may have lost his glove as well|
Somebody told me once that Brett Lawrie had the biggest cup on the Jays....not sure how they knew...
|that's one helluva cup there Brett!!|
Finally, I have decided that when I grow up, I want to be a baseball player and have a nickname like "Hard Hittin"
|Should have been nicknamed "suitcase"...played for 7 teams in a 6 year span|
Marcus, thank you very much for the cards, they are much appreciated!!
Thanks for reading, Robert
