2019 National Pickup - Bob Forsch Signed 1987 Topps

Here is another signed 1987 Topps that I picked up from the National.  This Bob Forsch looks really nice, and I didn't have to pay a whole lot for it.

Forsch (b. 1950 - d. 2011) played in the majors from 1974 to 1989 for the Cardinals and Astros.  He had a career record of 168-136 with 1,133 strike outs and a 3.76 ERA.  He was a two-time Silver Slugger (1980 and 1987) and won the World Series with the Cardinals in 1982.

He appeared on the 1995 Hall of Fame ballot, and received 0.4% of the vote.

Forsch died suddenly on November 3, 2011, due to a thoracic aortic aneurysm.
