1991 Upper Deck, Paul Molitor
#324 Paul Molitor
I got this card signed in the early '90s through the mail. It was probably when Paul was still in Milwaukee, but it could have been after he left for Toronto. This is about the worst card that I could have possibly sent to him. You can barely see the signature on it. He signed on top of the blue outfield wall with a blue sharpie. About the only thing that you can see is part of the P on the pant leg. If it would have been signed in black or up around his waist, it would have been perfect.
I don't know this for sure, but I have heard that Paul works for the Twins. If that is the case, I will send him a card to sign this season.
According to Wikipedia, Paul is one of four players that has 3000 hits, a .300 lifetime average, and 500 stolen bases. The other three players are Ty Cobb, Honus Wagner and Eddie Collins.
That is two Pauls in a row on here.
