Thanks again Alfredo, this is easily one of my favorite Andre Dawson cards.

Jorge Cantu Autograph TTM Success!!!

Sweet!  These signed Jorge Cantu cards were returned to me in 63 days.

Cantu’s signature is really nice.  I don’t think that the scan does it any justice as it really has some bold and strong curves that really add to the overall look.  And on these 2 cards, it pops!!

I like Cantu.  He’s a very quiet player, but he produces at a rate that is comparable with the stars of the Marlins team.  I also really like the fact that he accepted a position change this off-season just to help the team.  His move from 3rd base to 1st base allows the Marlins to inject a solid defender in Bonifacio at third while also adding quite a bit more speed to the offense.  Guys like these are very easy to like, and Cantu leads that class for me!!

Thanks Jorge!

Rickey & Reggie = Speed & Power

 The puzzle is complete.

Admittedly, it was not very hard to put together as it only had 2 parts.  But a puzzle is a puzzle and this one is a work of art!!!

I have been trying to think of other players that played during this era that when just their first name is mentioned you know who is being discussed.  And for the life of me I cannot think of any bigger stars in 1983 than Rickey & Reggie.
