1981 Donruss, Larry Bowa

#142 Larry Bowa

This is the last 1981 Donruss card that will be on here for at least three months. I believe that I now have 22 cards from this set signed. That is the most that I have from one set besides 2008 Topps. But, these cards look much better signed than '08 Topps.

This is the second of three cards that Larry signed for me TTM during Spring Training. I love how much he chokes up on the bat. We may never see another batter that chokes up like that ever again. Also, this card is an error card. Look at his position, it says shortshop.

I went to the Royals game today and finally got to see Zack Grienke pitch in person this year. Unfortunately, he didn't have his best stuff today and allowed 4 runs (3 earned) in 7 innings while striking out 7. He got a no-decision.

But, I was able to get eight cards signed during BP. Two Royals signed three cards each and two ChiSox signed one each. After the game, I got four more cards signed by the parking lot.

I am planning on having a contest sometime this week. I have a few cool things to give away. I just have to figure out how I am going to go about it. So, stay tuned. Hopefully, you will not be disappointed.

Hey, I was watching that game on WGN! Maybe I saw you in the stands and didn't notice it. (I kept focusing on a gal who was sitting along the first base line).

I doubt that you saw me. I was on the first base side, but I was high up in the lower level so I could be in the shade.

They way it's looking right now, I think that you might have missed on your AL Central prediction. It is still a prediction that I appreciated, though.

Well, it wasn't a serious prediction anyway. Although I would love to see K.C. back in the postseason.
