1986 Topps, Tito Landrum
#498 Tito Landrum
Are you tired of '86 Topps Cardinal cards yet? Does every team from that set have this bad of a photo selection?
If you can't figure out where I got this card signed, read the previous posts and you should be able to figure it out.
Tito was one of the better signers for the Cardinals at the '85 Classic (there was only one bad signer there). He signed at least two different times and the last time he signed, he did it in the stands. He climbed into the the $190 Crown Seat section by the dugout and crawled over a few rows to get closer to the fans. One guy beside me told him to be careful so he doesn't pull a hammy and Tito told him "I wish I still had a hammy to pull". All in all, Tito seemed like a class-act and I'm glad that he was able to take part in the event.
To Tito's credit, he really doesn't look much older now than he does in this card.
Tonight is the final night of the trip and we are spending it at a game in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The Drillers are hosting the Midland Rockhounds. I should make it back home late tonight and then I will probably not post anything on Saturday (but that may change). I will definitely have something up on Sunday and I hope that will include a road trip recap.
