Random Act of Kruk

Robert M of $30 A Week Habit sent me just one card but I'm not sure I've ever gotten such a fine one as this in the mail. But it's hard to say which is the best card I've ever gotten and it's unfair to even try. What is fair is that it's fairly impossible as they are all so very welcome. This one is my second signed John Kruk card (the first one was sent to me by Mark Mosley, who draws baseball cards and is co-host with Andy of the Baseball Beyond Batting Average Podcast, which I highly recommend listening to). 

Robert sent me this on-card autograph and it is sweet. Robert said it was a #RAK which I had to look up as I'm not totally hashtag literate. Turns out it means "Random Act of Kruk". It was even featured on Kruk's uniform in his iconic 1987 Topps card: 


Back to Robert's card... I'm not usually a fan of the Gypsy Queen cards (or, for that matter, the Allen & Ginter thing), but this one for me is an exception and it's most welcome in my John Kruk box.


BOOM!

Thank you so very much Robert!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I think anytime someone comes across a Kruk, they immediately think of you.

    1. This is reassuring as I'm usually thought of with far less charitable and far more negative emotions...

  2. Great looking autograph! I'm a big fan of GQ on-card autographs.

    1. Thanks! I quite like Kruk's signature. I prefer on-card to the sticker variety... it feels... more intimate, if I can use that word?
