Mariano Duncan Autograph TTM Success!!!

Mariano Duncan delivered these awesome looking autographs to me in 76 days.  Man, what a sweet signature!!!

Duncan had a very solid 12 year career.  Although he bounced around between 6 different teams, he did find himself playing in 3 World Series contests.  He owns 2 championship titles from his time as a member of the 1990 Cincinnati Reds and the 1996 New York Yankees. 

Today Duncan is a member of Joe Torre’s coaching staff with the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Thanks for the great autographs Mr. Duncan!!

Happy Birthday Barry Larkin!!!

Barry Larkin turns 45 years old today!

One of the most respected players from his era, Larkin was as classy of a player in the league as there was during the 1980’s, 1990’s, and into the 2000’s.  A 19-year veteran who spent his entire career in Cincinnati, Larkin was the centerpiece of the Reds’ team and their lone constant.

Larkin’s abilities were endless.  Solid hitter, great defender, base stealer, home run hitter…  Larkin excelled at each and every aspect of the game.  In his best season in 1995, he won the MVP award.  In that season, Larkin hit .319 while collecting 158 hits, 98 runs, 51 stolen bases, 66 RBI, 15 home runs and the Gold Glove and Silver Slugger awards.

Barry is up for election into Baseball’s Hall of Fame this year, and for his birthday I give him my vote!  I don’t think any other gift would be as fitting!!!

Happy Birthday Mr. Larkin!!!
