TTM #106 - Psychopath Closer!

Hey guys, Drew back here! I recently sent out a few TTM's, and one of them rolled in during my Spring Break! Take a look:
Former closer Al Hrabosky signed two cards for me along with an index card! Known as "The Mad Hungarian" (one of the best nicknames in baseball history in my opinion), Al had a knack for putting on a show for the fans. He would step off the mound between pitches, turn away from the batter, pound the ball into his glove, and then whipped back around and stared down the hitter with his nasty facial hair until they were scared to death. Call him crazy; but he still managed to win the 1975 Fireman of the Year award, and after it was all said and done he retired with 97 career saves. 

Currently, he is the color commentator for the St. Louis Cardinals, the team he played most of his career for. I love the index card personalization "Psyche Up! Al Hrabosky, The Mad Hungarian". He certainly isn't the best success I've ever gotten but it'll rank up there as one of the cooler ones.

Thanks Mr. Hrabosky! See Ya!


  1. This is a great one. I have a small collection of "serial killers" cards in my uncollectables binder. Mr. Hrabosky is in there twice.

    Glad to see he has a sense of humor about his off-puttingness.
