1981 Donruss, Al Hrabosky

#550 Al Hrabosky

Here is another '81 Donruss card that I got signed through the mail last week. It took about eight days to return to me.

Unfortunately, I do not know much about Al Hraboskey. His playing career ended when I was three years old. I didn't know who he was until the late '80s when I saw him on a baseball show (probably This Week in Baseball) on TV. It was probably a little segment on relievers and it had a clip of Al performing his antics behind the mound. I thought that that was pretty cool at the time. Other than his stats, that his about all I know about him.

The picture on this card is one of the few pictures that wasn't obviously taken at Wrigley Field or Comiskey Park. It could have been taken there, but you can't really tell. It almost seems like a picture that they would take for the media guide, with one exception. Al looks like he has been sweating his ass off. I don't get media guides, but I doubt that they have pictures in them of players that just finished a working out. They probably use a little better lighting, too.

That is a great sig by "The Mad Hungarian". What a great turnaround time too!
