My First Time – Tony Pena – September 1, 1980

My First Time – Tony Pena – September 1, 1980

The Setting – Three Rivers Stadium.  Pittsburgh, PA.

From Pena – ‘My first at-bat was against Randy Neimann.  He struck me out on four pitches – my hands were shaking the whole time’.

The Boxscore – Astros 10, Pirates 4.  Pena goes o-for-1 as a pinch-hitter with a strikeout.

The Final Pack Of 1990 Fleer – Pack #4

I received 4 packs of 1990 Fleer in the contest I won on the Autographed Cards blog.

Here are the results from Pack #4

Andy Hawkins, Ron Gant, Gregg Olson, Howard Johnson, Steve Olin, Tony Pena, Howard Johnson/Ryne Sandberg, Paul O’Neil, Joe Carter, Don Aase, Steve Farr, Jeff Peterek, BJ Surhoff, Jerome Walton, and Eric Hetzel.

Not too bad of a pull.  I like the Joe Carter, Jerome Walton, and Paul O’Neil cards. 



18 Autograph TTM Requests Have Been Shipped – Spring Training Style!!!

 That’s right I said 18.  18 envelops are in the mail and they’re going to Spring Training!!!  I have selected 18 more players to seek autographs from.  A select few are of current players but the remainder are of veterans that have now become coaches.

I’ve read often enough that Spring Training is a great time to start going for autographs so I am going to test that theory.  This will not be the only bunch to hit the mail stream this month but I can guarantee that most of these envelopes will be to the stadium prior to the players and coaches getting there.

The guys – Ken Oberkfell, Tony LaRussa, Ozzie Guillen, Hal McRae, Terry Pendleton, Matt Williams, Alan Trammell, Juan Samuel, Mariano Rivera, Andy Pettitte, Gerald Perry, Tony Pena, Jose Oquendo, Fred McGriff, Roy Halladay, Joe Girardi, Mariano Duncan, and Will Clark.

Wish me luck!!!
