Private Signings Results: Cincinnati Reds Legend, Eric ‘The Red’ Davis
If you know me, and you know about my collection, you know that I really try to honor the baseball heroes from my youth. As much as I can, I really try to celebrate the careers of the players that helped shape my love for the sport as a kid that has carried me all of the way into adulthood.
As I continue to build my collection in this manner, I look for new ways to honor the guys that I cheered for as a kid.
So, when I had a chance to nab Eric Davis as a recent paid signing event, I jumped in with both feet.
And now, this beautifully signed baseball is in my collection!!
I’ve wanted ‘ED’ in my collection for a very long time. He was a huge star in the mid-to-late 1980’s and into the 1990’s. I used to love watching him track down balls in center field and run the bases with power and speed.
I opted for the #44 inscription for my ball as that is how I referred to him for a pretty long time. When talking baseball with my buddies or pulling cards from packs, it was almost always #44 that I spoke when Davis came up.
I’m very happy to have added him to my collection. And I think I will set this ball right next to my signed ball of his best-bud, Straw.
