Continuing from yesterday's post.....

Steve Blass
was probably the best Pirates pitcher of the late 60s, early70s. In 1968, he won 18 games with 7 shutouts and in the 1971 World Series, he pitched two complete games, both wins including Game 7 and he came in second to Roberto Clemente in World Series MVP voting.


Jose "Coco" Laboy
was the Montreal Expos regular third baseman their first two seasons in baseball. In 1969, he had a great 1969 season with 18 homers and 83 RBI while batting .258 but in 1970 he hit only .199 with his power stats dropping off. He originally signed with the Giants in 1959 and played in their system until 1963, when he signed with the Cardinals and played in their system until he was drafted by the Expos as the 54th pick in the 1968 expansion draft.

Rick Baldwin
pitched for the New York Mets from 1975 to 1977, mainly as a relief pitcher, He was drafted by the Seattle Mariners from the Mets but never pitched in a big league game for them.

Floyd Wicker 
was a back up outfielder for the Cardinals, Expos, Brewers and Giants organizations.

  1. Custom cards with actual TTM signatures on them? Genius idea. I wonder if the signers sometimes recognize that the cards are something different they've never seen or signed before...
