Calvin Schiraldi

By 1990 I had collecting cards obsessively for 5 years, had been married for 5 years and and had two sons.  I split the year workwise between being a planer operator at a lumber mill and beginning a five year run at one of the local card shops.  The LCS had already been around for 8 years and is still going strong today.                                                                                Calvin Schiraldi will always be a Red Sox to me, he was not much of a blip on the Padres radar.  He only got a card cause of his notoriety with the Mets and the Red Sox.  He only participated in 47 games over two seasons for the Padres.  I picked up this signed 1990 card on eBay, I think.
