Tony Gwynn (1960-2014)

I found this one on eBay - only a few dollars, but no guarantee that the sharpie autographed card is legit. For now, I will count it as the next success in my collection.

Tony Gwynn was definitely one of the biggest stars as I was growing up. His style was less about mashing the ball, and more about finding ways to reach base.

I tried once or twice to get his signature through the mail, but had no success.

18 signatures out of 62 living Hall of Famers, gives me my highest percentage yet - 29%!

Update: Mr. Gwynn passed away on June 16, 2014.
