1987 Topps, Spike Owen
#591 Spike Owen
Here is the second and final Spike Owen card that I was able to get signed in Omaha last month. Spike is a coach for the Round Rock Express and I got this card signed prior to a game against the Storm Chasers.
Spike played in the Majors for thirteen seasons and he played for five teams- the Mariners, Red Sox, Expos, Yankees, and Angels. He never made an All Star team, but he did start all seven games of the 1986 World Series where he hit .300 and played errorless shortstop. He hit .246 for his career and he hit 46 home runs, including a season-best 7 with the Expos in 1992.
I don't know what it is about this card, but the signature sure does stand out.
