1990 Leaf, Danny Jackson

#279 Danny Jackson

Here is a card that my dad was able to get signed for me at the '85 Classic. When we got to the game, I went down by the Royals dugout and I had my dad head go over to the visiting dugout to hold a spot for me in case I needed to be over there. As soon as the '85 Cardinals came out of the Royals dugout, they all headed over to the opposite dugout. I followed them over there and I gave my dad my Royals cards and told him to see what he could get signed by the '85 Royals. He wasn't happy about it, but he went over there anyways.

Only a couple of the Royals ended up signing and Danny Jackson was obviously one of them. Dane Iorg was the other guy who signed and I needed him on an '81 Donruss. Dane signed for a bit and I assumed my dad got my '81D signed by him. But, that was not the case. My dad got so flustered trying to find the card that he ended up dropping some cards. By the time he got those picked up, Dane was through signing. I still give my dad crap about that every once in a while, but I am glad that he was able to get this card signed because it is the first and only 1990 Leaf card that I have signed.

Remember when these cards first came out? It was like 1989 Upper Deck all over again. To this day, I still do not have many cards from this set because they were so expensive.

This is the second Danny Jackson card that I have posted on here. The first one was posted almost two years ago and you can see it here.

I remember not being able to afford 1990 Leaf, though I can't recall the specific cards that drove the set through the roof. I don't believe I have a single non-Met card from it.

Card and signature turned out great in tandem!
