1988 Topps 5

#420 Wally Joyner

This is my second favorite autograph because this is the first one that I ever got through the mail. In 1988, Beckett listed the addresses of the team's spring training homes. I probably sent about five or six off right before the end of spring training and this was the only one that I got back. I can't remember who else I sent cards to, except for Benito Santiago. Surely Mark McGwire or Jose Canseco were one of them.

I even still have the envelope that in came in. That's the only reason I knew I got it in '88.
