1987 Donruss Opening Day, Frank White

#204 Frank White

This is the card that I got signed when the Royals Caravan came to town.

This card is from the 1987 Donruss Opening Day set. As far as I know, they only made this set that one year. It wasn't distributed in packs. It was only available as a set. And if I remember correctly, it came in a fancy plastic case with a clear lid. I got a few cards from the set when one of the local cards shops busted open a couple of sets and made their own packs. This Frank White card is kind of beat up, but I thought it would be cool to get one of these signed.

I'm so jealous of the Frank White autograph! Congrats.

I've been waiting for him to come around my area. I'm working on a project to get he, Rose, and Boone to sign a baseball with different inscriptions about the 1980 WS Boone bobble that Rose caught.

I do not know if this is true or not, but one of the guys that I talked to at Fanfest, while waiting in line for autographs, said that Frank does not do inscriptions. He said that he had a ball singed by Mark Grudzielanek and had it inscribed 2006 Gold Glove winner. He thought that it would be cool to get White to sign it and insribe 8x gold glove winner. Frank said that he wouldn't do that. If he started to do that for everyone, the next thing you know, he would be writing his biography everytime he signed his name.

Like I said, this is just secondhand infor mation. I have no idea if it is true or not.

It always bugs me when players do the 'no inscription' line. Getting his autograph would be good enough for this project though. I just don't want to drive out to far to get him.
