1985 Topps, Johnny Ray



#96 Johnny Ray

Here is another card that was given to me by the Collective Troll. This one features former Pirate, and Angel, Johnny Ray.

Johnny spent ten seasons in the Majors, mostly in Pittsburgh. He is a .290 career hitter who had 70 or more RBI in a season three times. He hit between 5 and 7 home runs every year except for his rookie year and was an All-Star in 1988. Those seem like pretty decent numbers for a second baseman in the '80s.

I am guessing that this was obtained by the Troll during Spring Training. The red really works well on this card.

Yes, it was a spring training graph-i like the colored sharpies, just to mix things up. I love getting original Devil Rays to sign in purple! Glad you still like the cards... Send me an e-mail with who I sent you and I will see if I have any more. Cheers!

That red does look good and he has a nice signature.
