National Free Signer - Ron Blomberg

One of the free signers that I was able to get at the National was former Yankee, Ron Blomberg.  I was able to get one card signed by him, so I chose this 1988 Topps Turn Back The Clock, since I didn't have any of those cards signed yet.  It turned out really nice, I think.

Blomberg (b. 1948) played in the Majors from 1969, 1971 to 1976 and 1978 for the Yankees and White Sox.  He had 391 hits, 52 home runs and a .293 batting average.  He is best known as the first designated hitter in baseball history.
