On Saturday, February 1st I received my latest Oakland Athletics TTM success. I received 5 autographed cards from former pitcher Dave Beard. Dave spent 4 years in the Athletics organization from 1980-83. He was drafted in the 6th round by the Athletics in the 1977 Amateur Draft. He made his first Major League appearance July 16, 1980, pitching the 9th inning of a loss to the Detroit Tigers. After the 1983 season the Athletics packaged Dave with Bob Kearney in a deal with the Seattle Mariners for Darrel Akerfelds and Bill Caudill.
Dave autographed 5 cards for me: 1982 Fleer, 1984 Fleer, 1983 Donruss, 1981 Topps & 1983 Topps.
