1981 Donruss, Ron Cey
#296 Ron Cey
Everyone else was getting Ron Cey autos through the mail (30-year old cardboard, OMGautos, and even Night Owl), so I figured that I might as well, too. I got this card and another one back in less than two weeks.
Ron played most of his career with the Dodgers. But, for me, I remember him as a Cub. When I first started to get into baseball, one of the things that helped spur my interest was WGN. I remember coming home from school and turning on the tube and watching the end of a Cubs game while I did my homework. That was how I was introduced to Ron Cey and that is how I remember him. But, unfortunately, I did not send him a Cubs card to sign. The ones I had weren't in that good of condition or didn't look like they would look good signed. So, I sent him this one and an odd one that I will post on here in about a week.
This is the eightteenth '81 Donruss that I have got signed. I love getting these cards signed for some reason. They always come out good, even when done in ballpoint pin. I would try to collect the whole set, but it would be counterproductive since I'm always trying to get these signed. I have three more of these cards out in the mail somewhere right now.
