Andre Dawson 2004 Donruss Playoff Honors – Prime Signatures

This card comes from the 2004 Donruss Playoff Honors subset titled ‘Prime Signatures’.  Serial numbered 2452/2500, I have to imagine that there was a shorter print run of cards actually featuring Andre’s beautiful autograph.

 This card design is perfect and works very well with the Montreal Expos color scheme.  Donruss did a great job of using the team’s colors to add life to the card.

Something tells me that Andre’s signature in Blue Sharpie would be the perfect final touch for this one!!!

Did You Know…

Pitcher Randy Johnson holds the lifetime record for average number of strikeouts per nine innings with 10.8.

My take – This book was printed in 2007 so I verified that Johnson is still the leader but his average has dropped to 10.6 since the book was published.  Amazingly, second place is owned by Kerry Wood(yep, that Kerry Wood) with a 10.4 average.

 This is one heck of a subset and 1 that I am happy to have pieced together. 

Reggie had an amazing, incomparable baseball career and is certainly worthy of being honored by Score with this amazing tribute!!

A true baseball icon worthy of all of the praise he received during and after his playing days, Reggie Jackson will always be remembered as much for his personality as his ability to launch home runs deep into the night!!!

And then there are his 4 World Series Championship rings – that doesn’t hurt either!!
