In 1990 I got this card signed at Civic Stadium when the Las Vegas Stars came to town to play the Portland Beavers. I couldn't find an 8X10 photo of him so I blew the card up to photo size and had him sign it. He was impressed and asked me to blow up some for him, several of the guys on the team had the same request. I think I got several signed balls from players and even a team signed bat.
Pat Clements was drafted by the Yankees in the 32nd round of the 1980 draft but did not sign. In 1983 he was drafted in the 3rd round by the Angels. In 1985 he was traded to the Pirates, then in 1986 he was traded to the Yankees, then in 1988 he and Jack (Bleech) Clark were traded to the Padres. He played in 71 games over 4 seasons going 7-2 with a 3.60 ERA. In 1992 he was claimed off waivers by the Baltimore Orioles and he finished his career with them.
The next card will be one of my favorites in my collection.
