1990 Donruss, Dan Gladden

#22 Dan Gladden

Here is a card that I was able to get signed underneath the pressbox at Rangers Ballpark last month. Dan works for the Twins radio broadcast, I believe.

I'm not sure if this is true or not, but it seems that Dan might only sign Twins cards. The reason I say that is because when I asked if he would sign, he said "what is it, cards?". I said that it was and kind of held my book up for him to see. He got up to and I handed my book to him and this was the only card that he signed. He didn't sign the card of him as a Giant or Tiger. He could just be a one card signer, but most players don't ask what they are going to be signing. Does anyone else have any experience with Dan Gladden?

I was surprised to see that Dan looked just like I remembered him. He even had the same hairstyle that he had as a player. It was a little thinner, but still the same style and color.

You can't go wrong with a signed Diamond King.

To answer your question, no. I got Danny Gladden to sign a '92 Upper Deck card with him on the Tigers (as well as a '92 Stadium Club with him on the Twins). His Twins cards will always be much sweeter anyways.
