Link Exchange- Henderson

Rickey Henderson
I have an e-mail from a guy named Tony, wanting to do a link exchange stating he has just started his blogg. So, I went and looked at Tony's blogg says that he collects Rickey Henderson so I chose Rickey Henderson for this blogg. This card is a 1991 Upper Deck. I have always been fascinated by this 3D card.
You have a great sight Tony keep up the good work!
It took a long time, huh? (Pause for cheers). First of all, I would like to thank God for giving me the opportunity. I want to thank the Haas family, the Oakland organization, the city of Oakland, and all you beautiful fans for supporting me. (Pauses for cheers). Most of all, I'd like to thank my mom, my friends, and loved ones for their support. I want to give my appreciation to Tom Trebelhorn and the late Billy Martin. Billy Martin was a great manager. He was a great friend to me. I love you, Billy. I wish you were here. (Pauses for cheers). Lou Brock was the symbol of great base stealing. But today, I'm the greatest of all time.
Thank you.

Thanks for the link. I collect more than just Ricky now, but he was definitely my first favorite player.

I loved that UD card!

My favorite Rickey story ever is when he played with Olerud the second time and told him that he had played with another guy in Toronto who also wore a batting helmet in the field. Olerud told him that was him too, to which Rickey replied "Crazy man, crazy"

Gotta love The Rickey.
