1981 Donruss, Dave Lopes

#416 Dave Lopes

Here is the Davey Lopes card that I got signed through the mail 2014. Davey was coaching for the Dodgers at the time and I got the card signed care of the team. It took just over two weeks to get this card back.

Davey played for the Dodgers for ten seasons and he had a great run with the team. Over that time, he made four straight All Star teams, played in four World Series, stole over 400 bases, hit double digit home runs five times, scored 100+ runs twice, and won a Gold Glove. Along the way, he hit .262 with 99 home runs, 384 RBI, and 759 runs scored.

And, if all of that was not good enough, Davey went to college just down the road from my hometown at Washburn University in Topeka, Kansas.

Dusty does not work for the Dodgers any more. He is currently the first base coach for the Washington Nationals.
