1982 Donruss 2



I got this earlier in the season at the Willie Wison Classic in Kansas City. Ferguson was the premier player at the event (ie, he was the only Hall of Famer). Originally, Ozzie Smith and George Brett were supposed to be there, but they fell through and Jenkins stepped up into their spots. He was the starting pitcher for the green team and did pretty well.

Like every autograph I got at this game, I got after the game as the players went to the clubhouse (or left it) in right field. I gave Jenkins my book which had two of his cards, but he only signed this one. I can't complain, though. It's not every day that you have a chance to get a Hall of Famer's autograph.

Any HOFer is a good one. It still blows me away that he played for Texas, but that was a bit before my time. I love the old uniforms.
