Chicago Cubs Greats Of The Game – Mark Grace

Chicago Cubs Greats Of The Game – Mark Grace

This is my 6th card from this 8-card series and I am happy to bring Mark Grace home!!  While living in Chicago it was very hard not to enjoy watching Grace play ball.  Even a few of my friends that were Sox fans liked Gracey.  He had a ton of fun while playing, gave great interviews, and was one hell of a hitter.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, #17 needs to be waving in the breeze alongside the other Cubs legends.  Luckily this set of cards keeps him on par with the greatest Cubbies of all-time!!!

I have to admit that it would have been better if they used a picture featruing one of the sweetest left-handed swings I’ve ever seen…

Greg Gagne Autograph TTM Success!!!

All it took Greg Gagne was 9 days to return this card back to me!!

Gagne was just another cog in the wheel of those great Twins teams of the late 80’s and early 90’s.  A solid contact hitter and base runner, Gagne had a knack for getting on base and scoring runs.  He was part of the Twins championship teams of 1987 and 1991.  In those 14 World Series games, Gagne collected 10 hits while scoring 6 runs and driving in an additional 6.

Thank you for the great autograph Mr. Gagne!!!
