1985 Champions: Kansas City Royals signed Sports Illustrated   2 comments

This is the jewel of my collection. As a Royals fan it is hard to image one single item being much more cool than this. I’m up to 17 autographs by the championship team on this cover from when they won it all in 1985. The most recent additions were Danny Jackson and Darryl Motley. Before that it was Frank White and Hal McRae that got added to the mix.

I struck gold when I picked this up at an estate sale a couple years ago already having several of the really hard to find Royals players on it… like George Brett, Bret Saberhagen and Steve Balboni. Sadly the one signature it will never have is Dan Quisenberry. The two most notable names missing now are Mark Gubicza and Jim Sundberg. I guess I really need the Angels and Rangers to come to KC to pick those up. Enjoy!

Danny Duffy 2011 Spring Training custom card Autograph

This is my Danny Duffy from my 2011 Topps Spring Training set. At the time he wasn’t on the Royals yet but he turned out to be a big part of the team late in the season. The Royals Caravan came through town last weekend and I saw it as a good opportunity to get one of my custom cards signed. Very cool by the way. Duffy’s comment about the card: “I haven’t seen this one before, I look mad!”
