1988 Score Andre Dawson

1988 Score Andre Dawson

Here is Andre’s first card from Score.  When this set first came out, I must have had 20 of these guys.  It’s nice to have it back again in my collection!!!  I always liked the Score design; I just wish that the border was either Red or Cubbie Blue to match the theme of this specific card…

Happy Birthday Ferguson Jenkins!!!

That’s right, Fergie Jenkins turns 66 today!!

Often underrated and under-appreciated when talking about the greatest pitchers of all-time, Fergie Jenkins belongs in that group.  A dominant pitcher in the late 1960’s and through the 70’s, Fergie was wildly popular as a member of the Chicago Cubs, Boston Red Sox, and Texas Rangers.

So what do you get this Hall of Fame pitcher for his birthday?  Hmmm, this is a tough one.  I would like to give Mr. Jenkins first ballot entry into the Hall of Fame.  He absolutely deserves it as his stats are comparable or better than other pitchers in the Hall of Fame that pitched during the same era.

Happy Birthday Fergie!!!
