An Amazing Andre Dawson “Mail Day” For 30-YOC!!
Friends, I have had a lot of great ‘mail days’ since I started this blog. There have been great purchases. There have been incredible trades. There have been fantastic gift.
But, today’s ‘Mail Day’ is just a tad more special, and a tad more unique.
I sent a package to Andre Dawson a few weeks ago, after all of the MLB All-Star and HOF induction festivities were done.
And on Saturday, that package was returned to me with two great items enclosed.
For starters, I was able to add another signed baseball to my collection, that would be Andre Dawson signed ball #18 for my collection.
As with all of the balls in my Dawson collection, I sought out another unique inscription – this time going for a career achievement.
Have a look:
Yep, it is a ball celebrating Andre’s 2,774 career hits. And it is a perfect complement to my other achievement balls.
The next item is the one that I am really excited about.
Are you ready?
Yessir, that is a 1977 Topps signed rookie card.
I have wanted a signed rookie card in my collection for a very long time and I have no idea why I waited as long as I did to get this one done. But, now that it is home, I can officially scratch it off of my ‘Want List’. And trust me when I tell you, it has been on that list for years!!
Two fantastic items – two great additions to the collection that honors my favorite baseball player of all-time!!
