Who is this? former Montreal Expos pitcher Don DeMola What is this? An autographed card from the 1976 Topps set Where'd I get it? Nick from Baseball Happenings got it signed for me last month
Why is this so special? DeMola, a Long Island native, was drafted by the New York Yankees in 1970. While still in the minors, they released him and DeMola eventually signed with the Expos.
DeMola reached the majors in 1974 and pitched effectively in limited duty out of the bullpen. He returned in 1975, but did not fare as well. DeMola finished his major league career with a 5-7 record and 3.77 ERA in 87 games.
DeMola continued to pitch in the minor leagues through 1978. He currently offers baseball instruction, fur buying tips and FIOS installation in the Long Island area via his website, DonDeMola.com.
DeMola has a pretty good looking autograph that is easy to read.
I'm only putting autograph-related links in this blogroll. However, if you have a blog or a collector site not specifically about autographs, but with an autograph page or an "autograph" label on your blog posts, I'll put that link here.
