A rookie card framed reprint #ed out of 99. R.I .P Tony.
Monday, July 7, 2014
I haven't written anything about the passing of Tony in large part because he passed right before we left on vacation. I have always had a soft spot for the Padres and for Tony Gwynn and I married a girl from San Diego to boot. I will never forget the story I heard about him in which he would practice his swing in a full swimming pool. There may never be another hitter like Tony. Too many players now days swing for the fences and don't seem to appreciate the art of the single. The best card I pulled this year.
