1981 Donruss, Dwane Kuiper
#319 Duane Kuiper
Here is the card of Duane Kuiper that I got signed through the mail. Notice that this is the error version of this card that misspells his first name. I sent this card to him in January and I had it back in just eight days.
Duane played in the Majors for twelve seasons and spent time with the Indians and Giants. He was the everyday second baseman for the Indians for a few seasons in the '70s before switching over to a part-time role in the '80s. He was a .271 hitter for his career and he hit one home run. That one homer was a solo shot off of the White Sox Steve Stone in 1977.
Duane was a bad base stealer. For his career, he was 52 for 123. That is a .423 success rate.
Duane is the play by play announcer for the San Francisco Giants.
