My 'under the radar' blog featuring my baseball card collecting endeavors and hopefully some of my autographs collected in-person / through-the-mail.

Featured autograph - Spike Owen
I have no real recollection of Owen as a MLB player, much less a one-time Angel, except as a junk wax guy - who generally fit the stereotype of a 'good field, no hit' shortstop at various points in his professional baseball career.
In 82 games during the strike shortened 1994 season, Owen had his best year with the bat - hitting .310 with 17 doubles, 2 triples and 3 home runs in 268 official at-bats.
