TTM Success…from 20-some odd years ago: Shawon Dunston

I was a bit of a Cubs fan back in the day, and Shawon Dunston was my favorite Cubbie. Between WGN games and visiting Wrigley (sitting in the bleachers!) in 1989, there was no hope for me.

Like Maddux, Dunston was evidently a fairly quick signer, making him a frequent target of my requests in the late 80s/early 90s. Here are ten signed Dunstons that I found a few nights ago while sorting through some cards. I’m pretty sure I have more…specifically the 1988 Topps team leaders card…but it wasn’t in the stacks on my table the other night.

The 1985 Topps is my favorite of these cards, with the 1988 Donruss coming in a distant second.

  1. great action shot on the 91 score

  2. Ooops! This was supposed to post tomorrow. Oh well…

    I’m not crazy about the ’91 Score. The arm is blurry, the ball is not in the picture, and the colors of the border don’t work well with the Cubs colors. I like the design, I just wish they had color coordinated the borders with the teams.

  3. His signature is very consistent.
