First we have Jeff Johnson from The Rookie red set sent to me by Chase n Ink a year or so ago. He signed 1/1 in 167 days via his home in NC. He played for the Yankees his entire career, which only lasted two years. He has a W-L record of 8-16 and a 6.52 ERA.
Then we have Paul Marak who signed 1/1 in 155 days via his home in NC – fun fact is he only played in the majors for 1 month! He’s also one of the few big leagues who is actually from England. He had a W-L record of 1-2 and ERA of 3.69.
Next we have Doug Dascenzo who signed 1/1 in 188 days via his home in PA. Doug played for the Cubs, Rangers and the Padres and once held the record for the number of games without an error at 241. He has coached and worked for many different teams since retiring in 1996.
Darren Holmes signed 1/1 in 178 days via the Colorado Rockies home stadium. Mr. Holmes played for the Dodges, Brewers, Rockies, Yankees, Diamondbacks, Cardinals, Orioles and the Braves. He was a member of the 1998 World Series Champions – the Yankees.
Steve Frey signed 1/1 in 203 days via his home in PA. Mr. Frey played from 1989-1996 for the Expos, Angels, Giants, Mariners and the Phillies. According to wikipedia he now coaches at a baseball academy in Florida.
Dan Pasqua signed 1/1 in 402 days via his home in IL. Dan played from 1985-1994 for the Yankees and the White Sox. He had a career high 20 HR in a season in 1988 and retired in 1994 after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery.
I purchased a card from Mike Felder because he seems to be a tough autograph to get – Startiger has the old “Charges for autograph” flag on his address. Mike played from 1975-1994 for the Brewers, Giants, Mariners and the Astros.
Next we have Bob Melvin. Mr. Melvin signed 1/1 in 77 days via the Oakland A’s. From 1985-1994 he played for the Tigers, Giants, Orioles, Royals, Red Sox, Yankees and the White Sox. He has been the manager of the Mariners, Diamondbacks and the A’s. He’s been the Manager of the Year 3 times.
Clay Parker signed 1/1 in 147 days via his home in Tennessee. He played for the Mariners, Yankees and the Tigers over the course of his seven year career. According to wikipedia, he can befriend any cat he encounters. O. K.
Gene Nelson signed 1/1 in around 359 days – don’t have the exact number via his home in Florida. He began his career in 1981 with the Yankeed and later played for the Mariners, White Sox, As, Angels and the Rangers. He won the World Series during his tenure with the A’s in 198.
Now for the Diamond King – Mr. Dave Righetti! He signed 1/1 in 213 days via the Giants. He played for the Yankees, Giants, As, Blue Jays, and the White Sox. Dave is a 2X all-star, and 3 times World Series champion as well as the AL Rookie of the Year in 1981. He now works in the Giants front office.
And finally we have Scott Garrelts who signed 1/1 in 99 days via his home in Louisiana. He only played for one team during his entire career from 1981-1991 – the Giants. He was a 1985 All Star and the NL ERA leader and is a member of the Giants wall of fame.
