2021 National Free Signer - Cecil FIelder

One of the free VIP party signers was a pretty big name, Cecil Fielder.  I needed Fielder for my 1987 set, so I was really excited to try to finally get that off of the list.  I had joined a private signing maybe 3 years ago, or so, and never got the card back.  So, here the card is, and it is off of my list.
Fielder would only sign one per, so my friend, Nate, got the above 1991 Upper Deck Fielder's Feat card signed for me.  Andrew got the 1992 Upper Deck done.
I went back through the line and got this playing card done.  My mom had given mea bag of cards she found at Goodwill, and there were two incomplete sets of these cards in the bag.  I haven't gotten any of them signed, so adding this Fielder to my album was something nice to get done.

Fielder (b. 1963) played in the majors from 1985 to 1988 and 1990 to 1998 for the Blue Jays, Tigers, Yankees, Angels and Indians.  He had 1,313 hits, 319 home runs and a .255 batting average.  He finished 2nd in the AL MVP race twice (1990 and 1991) and was a 3-time All Star (1990, 1991 and 1993).  He was also a 2-time Silver Slugger Award winner.

Fielder led the AL in home runs twice (51 in 1990 and 44 in 1991) and RBIs 3 times (1990, 1991 and 1992).  He won the World Series with the Yankees in 1996, batting .391 in that series.  He appeared on the 2004 Hall of Fame ballot, but received only 0.2% of the vote.
