Happy Birthday Will Clark!!!

Happy Birthday Will Clark!!!

Will Clark turns 48 years old today.

Noted as having one of the sweetest swings in the game during his playing days, Will Clark became an instant favorite to many baseball fans due to his incredible talent and personality.  On the field he was a perennial MVP candidate that flirted with .300 every year.  Off the field, he was a loud-mouthed, opinionated player who you couldn’t wait to her what he was going to say next.

Today, Will Clark is employed by the San Francisco Giants.  I sent a card of him to Spring Training hoping for an autograph – Wish me luck!!

Happy Birthday Mr. Clark!!

2013 Topps Archives ‘Tallboys’ Subset – Will Clark

2013 Topps Archives ‘Tallboys’ Subset – Will Clark

With the new 2013 Topps Archives baseball card set release, the ‘Mini Tallboys’ subset is easily one of the best parts of the issue.

The cards from this subset offer a very basic, but throwback feel that screams vintage. The set is 40 cards deep and offers a nice mixture of current players, stars from the 1980′s, and Hall of Fame legends.

This is the Will Clark card from the set:

CLARK

As a baseball fan that was completely immersed in the sport in the late 1980’s, Will Clark was very hard to ignore.  His personality drew your attention, and he sweet left-handed swing put you in a feeling of awe. 

Will’s nickname was ‘The Thrill’ and I will never forget the show that he put on in 1989 during the 5-game NLCS versus the Chicago Cubs – 13 hits in 20 at-bats good for a .650 average, 3 doubles, 2 home runs, 8 runs scored, and 8 RBI.

The show was unreal.  A true ‘Thrill’ to behold!!!

Happy Birthday Will “The Thrill” Clark!!!

3rd Spring Training 2010 Autograph TTM Success: Will Clark!!!

3rd Spring Training 2010 Autograph TTM Success: Will Clark!!!

This is the second time I have received Will Clark’s autograph through the mail.  The first time he signed for me was back in April, 2009 – you can read that story here.  I didn’t hold onto the card though; I passed it onto a newbie blogger and big Will Clark fan.  You may know him, here is a link to his blog.

I’m planning on holding onto this one a bit longer this time – after all I am 2/2 from Will ‘The Thrill’ and I have no idea how long my luck with him will last!!!   He returned this card back to me in just 27 days, and he even added his old jersey number, 22, to his signature this time around.

Thank you Mr. Clark!!

Happy Birthday Will Clark!!!
