Do you follow 30-Year Old Cardboard? If so, I'm sure you've seen his numerous posts highlighting Bob Gibson's amazing 17 year MLB career. The posts covered everything from his magical 1968 season to his 1981 first ballot Baseball Hall of Fame induction.
Those information in those posts made me truly appreciate Mr. Gibson and his contribution to the game. It also made me remember the time that he signed my 1997 Donruss Significant Signatures card on the back, instead of the front:
C'mon Bob! I know that this was your first MLB licensed certified autographed card, but I'm sure you've been signing cards since the start of your career. Heck... you signed these two certified cards on the front:
And these came out two to three years earlier than my card.
Anyways... it's your special day, so I won't ruin it by whining and complaining. According to Beckett you have 1,241 different autographs in circulation... and my guess is this is the only one you signed on the back. That's plenty of amazing Bob Gibson autographs for collectors to chase down.
Happy Birthday Mr. Gibson!
As for everyone else... happy Saturday and sayonara!
