1990 Donruss, Chris Bosio

#20 Chris Bosio

Here is a card that I got signed in Des Moines this summer. Chris is the pitching coach for the Nashville Sounds and I was able to get this card signed just before the game started. I was a little worried that I would get denied on this one since the the National Anthem had already been sung and the I-Cubs were already on the field. But, Chris came right over and signed all three cards for me.

The signatures seem kind of sloppy, but they seem like a shorter version of the sample provided by Baseball Almanac in the link. I am not sure if this is what Chris' signature looks like now or if this a hurried "the game is about to start" signature.

This is the second Diamond King from this set that I have got signed. I got Dan Gladden in Arlington a couple of years ago and it looks just as good. Actually, it looks a bit better since Dan has a neater signature. But, either way, you cannot beat a signed Diamond king.

It looks to me like Dick Perez created the wi-fi logo that pops up on my phone whenever I find a hot spot. I hope that he is getting credit for it.

Signed Diamond Kings cards do look great. That was my first thought before I saw your write up!

Those signed DK cards are great. I'm still amazed by some of the guys that made the DK set.
