1989 Donruss Danny Cox
Who is this? Former St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Danny Cox
What is this? An autograph card from the 1989 Donruss set
Where'd I get it? I got it signed before yesterday's doubleheader between the Lancaster Barnstormers and the Newark Bears.
How much did it cost? No idea where I picked up the card
Why is this so special? Danny Cox spent 11 years in the majors, retiring with a 74-75 lifetime record. He pitched in three World Series - 1985 and 1987 for the Cardinals and 1993 for the Blue Jays
After he retired, Cox managed the Gateway Grizzlies in the Frontier League for three seasons. He is currently the pitching coach for the Lancaster Barnstormers in the Atlantic League. And he still has that great mustache. :)
Cox doesn't have the prettiest signature, but it's fairly legible.
