Danny "Dr. Death" Darwin

I mailed Danny Darwin 3 different cards with doubles of each on 5/28/09 and received them back today.

Danny started out in the majors with the Rangers in 1978. Prior to that he played high school ball for the Fighting Purple Warriors in his hometown of Bonham, TX and at Grayson County JC.

I used to live next to the field where he played ball back in those days. In fact, I came pretty close to teaching school part-time there several years ago. It's a small town so you can imagine that the 'Bonham Bullet' is your typical small town hero. Of course, I didn't have the chance to see him play there 'cause he was long gone by then.

Here's card #1 in this group:
