Happy Birthday Terry Steinbach!!!

Happy Birthday Terry Steinbach!!!

Terry Steinbach turns 52 years old today.

Terry Steinbach was the anchor for a very successful Oakland Athletics pitching staff during their ‘Glory Years’ of the late 1980’s.

A 3-time All-star catcher, Steinbach was the model of consistency both at the plate and on the field for what at the time was baseball’s most dynamic line-up.  During Steinbach’s 14-year career, he hit a solid .271 while amassing 162 home runs and driving in 745 runs.  On a line-up that consisted of the amazing talents of Rickey Henderson, Jose Canseco, Mark McGwire, Carney Lansford, Dave Henderson, and others, it was Steinbach’s approach at the plate that helped the A’s become the elite team of the 1980’s.

Steinbach also caught 2 no-hitters during his career: 1 in 1990 by A’s ace Dave Stewart & 1 in 1999 by Eric Milton of the Twins.

Terry Steinbach helped lead the A’s to 3 consecutive AL pennants in 1988, 1989, and 1990.  The pinnacle was reached in 1989 as the Oakland A’s won the World Series in a 4-game sweep of the San Francisco Giants.

In Steinbach’s first year of Hall of Fame eligibility in 2000 he received 1 vote and was dropped from all future ballots.

Happy Birthday Mr. Steinbach!!

Terry Steinbach 2004 Topps All-Time Fan Favorites

Terry Steinbach 2004 Topps All-Time Fan Favorites

Terry Steinbach was one of the unsung heroes of that dynamic Oakland Athletics squad in the lat 1980’s and early 1990’s.

As the team’s catcher, he helped guide the pitching staff to three consecutive World Series appearances in 1988, 1989, and 1990.

Steinbach was a 3-time All-Star with the A’s, and his best statistical season came in 1993.  During that campaign, Steinbach hit .285, while collecting 111 hits, 19 doubles, 10 home runs, 43 RBI, and 47 runs scored.

It’s nice to see this card from the ‘Fan Favorites’ set pay homage to that great season!!!

Happy Birthday Terry Steinbach!!!

Anyone Want Terry Steinbach’s Autograph???

Yeah, so did I.  That’s why I sent a few cards to Mr. Steinbach courtesy of the Minnesota Twins during Spring Training this year.

I got the cards back, unsigned, along with a letter from this former Oakland A’s superstar in which he asks for a donation to a scholarship fund that he and his wife created called ‘The Terry Steinbach Scholarship Fund.’  Since 1988 the Steinbach family has raised over $75,000 and has aided 21 kids in their goals of getting a college education.  This is a very admirable project by the Steinbachs – and that’s a lot of autographs too!!!

So, my original question still stands, ‘Anyone want a Terry Steinbach autograph?’  I know I do, now I just need to pick up a few more cards of him before I send something out.  Terry charges just $2 per signed card, $3 for a personalized card, and $5 for a signed photo.  These prices are just too good to pass up, and I will be sending something Mr. Steinbach’s way very soon.

Interested?  If so, send your cards and donation made out to ‘The Terry Steinbach Scholarship Fund’, Terry Steinbach, P.O. Box 181, Hamel, MN, 55340.  Please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery of your signed cards.

Thank you for the great offer Mr. Steinbach.  And thank you for helping us with our future too!!!

15 TTM Autograph Attempts Are Out In The Mail…

Now that my Spring Training attempts at TTM are over, I wanted to jump right into the regular season.  I probably won’t send out a lot to active players but there are a ton of veterans still hanging out around the league disguised as coaches, announcers, and managers.  You better believe I am going to go after them with some gusto.  I’ve also got a nice stack of former Cubs that I want to try to get autographs from as well.

So here is my first attempt for some ‘regular season’ autographs.

The guys – Tom Browning, Damon Berryhill, Scott Sanderson, Ken Holtzman, Don Zimmer, Greg Gagne, Dan Gladden, Doug Dascenzo, Cris Carpenter, Terry Steinbach, Billy Hatcher, Jim Presley, Tommy Hutton, Cookie Rojas, and Dave Martinez.

As always, I will be sure to post my successes with you as they roll in.  And pics too of course!!!
