ken landreaux through the mail success!

today marks the 31st anniversary of ken landreaux's catch in center field of yankee stadium that ended the 1981 world series.  for that, i will always be grateful.  i am also grateful for these cards that were signed by mr. landreaux through the mail about three years ago.

he signed a copy of his 1981 topps traded card, as well as a 1982 fleer
and 1986 donruss card
both with dodger stadium as the backdrop.

landreaux was part of some other dodger postseason teams - 1983 and 1985, to be exact - but he lost his starting job to john shelby in 1987 and was not re-signed after that season.  landreaux is still affiliated with the dodgers, making appearances on their behalf, and also runs a baseball academy in compton which is where i sent these cards.

thanks ken!
