1981 Donruss, Bill Stein

#543 Bill Stein

Here is the second of two cards that Bill signed for me through the mail last year. The first card was his '77 Topps card and that card was posted in January. It can be seen here. It took just five days to get these two cards back.

As I mentioned in the first Bill Stein post, he was an original Mariner. He was their primary third baseman over the first two years of the franchise's existence before he started battling some injury problems. After the 1980 season, Bill was granted free agency and ended up signing with the Rangers. He spent five seasons with Texas as their utility man before hanging them up.

I'll bet I have a dupe or two I could get signed. His signature is pretty nice Zach. I've got some Casey Cox cards coming from COMC to send off.

Good luck with Cox! I can't wait to see the return and hear about your conversation with him.
