|Just in case you're not sick of the 1987 Topps design yet!|
Marty's best season by far was 1986, though it ultimately ended in heartbreak for the Sox. Barrett played in nearly every game that season and ended up with career highs in hits (179), doubles (39) and RBI (60). In the playoffs he was even hotter, with 24 hits including 13 in the World Series alone. He was the ALCS MVP that year, and had Boston been able to hold on against the Mets would have been a likely World Series MVP candidate as well given that he swatted .433 in the Fall Classic that year.
I wasn't aware that this nice, bold, on-card autograph existed since I wasn't collecting in 2005, but when I stumbled upon it during a late-night eBay search I was happy to bring it home with a bid of $5.06 with free shipping!
I've got a few autographs backed up in queue, so you'll be seeing some more Signature Sundays posts here on Shoebox Legends in 2017...
