1981 Donruss, Glenn Adams
#566 Glenn Adams
Here is what may be my next to last '81 Donruss card for a while. I have one to post tomorrow that came in the mail today. But, if I don't get another one in the mail by Friday, I will have to move on. Right now, I have nine '81 Donruss cards circulating in the mail and all of them have been out at least a week. So, there is still hope. What I need to do is send out another batch, but I just haven't gotten around to it.
Glenn is the batting coach for the Erie SeaWolves and I sent this card to the team's ballpark on the 28th of last month. I got it back twelve days later on the tenth.
For some reason, this autograph decided to smear. This is the second '81 Donruss that I have had this problem with and it is kind of bizaar in my opinion. Most older cards are great for autopraphs. Why I have had two of these smear is beyond me. I didn't notice any smudges on the inside of the envelope, so I have no idea what it got smeared on.
Glenn played in the Major League for eight years with the Giants, Twins, and Blue Jays. His best season was in 1979 when he had career highs in games played (119), home runs (8), RBI (50), and batting average (.301).
