1981 Donruss, Rollie Fingers
#2 Rollie Fingers
Finally, I have gotten to my '81 Donruss cards. In case you missed it, I hit my goal of 100 signed cards from the set back in September when Rick Cerone signed for me TTM. I haven't posted 100 cards from the set yet, but don't worry. Not only have I got 100 cards signed from the set, but I also am about halfway through the next 100. So, expect to be seeing a bunch of these cards from here on out. Some of the posts will be more in-depth than others while some will be really quick just to get them out of the way.
So, here is my fourth Rollie Fingers card that I have posted on here. Like the last card of him, this card was signed at All Star Fanfest last summer. I have had this card in my collection since I got hooked on this set, but I did not get it signed at my first encounter with Rollie as I did not realize he was going to appear there.
Rollie had a career year with the Padres in 1978 when he had a career high 37 saves. But, his best season came with the Brewers in 1981 when he won the National League Cy Young Award and the MVP by going 6-3 with 28 saves and a phenomenal ERA of 1.04.
And yes, I am trying to update the layout of my blog. It has been a few years since I have done this and I am not 100% happy with it so far. One thing I want to do is expand the header to make it wider. Any suggestions?
