Clark (b. 1955) played in the majors from 1975 to 1992 for the Giants, Cardinals, Yankees, Padres and Red Sox. He had 1,826 hits, 340 home runs and a .267 batting average.

Toward the end of his playing career, Clark tried his hand at drag racing. He ran a Top Fuel team in 1991; a car that was driven by the late, great, Tom "The Mongoose" McEwen. McEwen would win the final national event of his career in Clark's dragster. In 1992, Clark took over driving, but didn't fare too well. He wound up filing for bankruptcy and sold off his race team.
I sent to the private signing the same time as Ozzie Smith (March 3) and got the card back on August 29, for a 179-day TAT.
