Why go after this autograph: I know a lot of people out there are going who? Well if you grew up in New Jersey like I did and the team in your market was the Phillies, and you were really into card collecting and baseball in general in the mid 80s, then you know who I’m talking about. Otherwise let me fill you in. Von was a scrappy outfielder for the Phillies in the 80s and early 90s. His yearly average was 0.270/15/70/27, in other words a nice lead off guy. He was an all world player, but he was one of my favorite players growing up. He did the little things, that made those Phillies teams good. In today’s game this kind of player would become a journeyman. In the 80s he was as reliable as they come. In the early 90s he broke his wrist and with that, he lost his power, he only played one more year after that injury. To this day he is still one of my all time favorite players.
