Baseball signed: "Bobby Bonds", "Joe Rudi", "Dick Williams", "Vida Blue", "Manny Sanguillen", "Cecil Cooper", "Bill Madlock Jr", "Rollie Fingers", "Bill Campbell" and "Ferguson Jenkins", Rawlings Official National League baseball, William D. White, President. Anyone who thinks that BOBBY BONDS (1946-2003) is merely the father of Barry Bonds is seriously misinformed. A 3-time All-Star and 3-time Gold Glove, Bonds became the first player to hit 30 home runs and steal 30 bases in the same season. He was the first of only two players to hit over 400 homers and steal over 300 bases in his career, a feat matched only by his son. After seven seasons as a San Francisco Giant (1968-1974), Bobby played for 7 more clubs through 1981. Unlike Barry, who has been dogged by controversy during and after his playing days, Bobby Bonds was popular every place he played. He spent 23 seasons as a Giants player, coach, scout and front office official. JOE RUDI (b. 1946) played 16 Major League seasons (1967-1982), but is best remembered as left fielder on three consecutive World Champion Oakland A's teams (1972-1974). A 3-time All-Star and 3-time Gold Glove, he led the AL in hits and triples in 1972 and in doubles in 1974. The emotional DICK WILLIAMS (1929-2011) is the only manager to win pennants with three different teams (the Red Sox, A's, and Padres), as well as win titles in all four divisions. But despite his teams' successes, he always alienated management and players alike with his driving, hard-bitten, "my way or the highway" attitude. He managed six different teams in a career that stretched over 21 years and often included clashes with similarly single-minded owners. In 1972, Williams started the concept of using left handed pitchers and right hander's to overwhelm his opponents. His Oakland Athletics won the 1972, 1973 and 1974 World Series. VIDA BLUE won both the American League's Cy Young Award and Most Valuable Player - rarely given to a pitcher - in 1971. That year he went 24-8 for the A's, with a league-leading 1.82 ERA and 8 shutouts, plus 301 strikeouts. In a career stretching from 1969 to 1986, Blue won 209 games. Catcher MANNY SANGUILLEN was born in Colon, Panama on March 21, 1944. He played in the MLB from 1967 to 1980 for the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Oakland Athletics. Sanguillen is a three time All-Star and a two time World Series champion (1971 and 1979). With a career batting average of .296 he is tenth on the list for lifetime batting average for a catcher, fourth since World War II. CECIL COOPER played first base and DH'd for the Boston Red Sox (1971-1976) and Milwaukee Brewers (1977-1987), playing in the 1975 World Series for the Red Sox and the 1982 World Series for the Brewers. Cooper led the American League in RBIs in 1980 and 1983 and had a lifetime .298 batting average. BILL MADLOCK Jr. primarily a third baseman led the National League in hitting four times (1975-1976, 1981, 1983). He starred for the Pirates during their World Series victory of 1979. A three-time All-Star, he was the only right handed hitter to lead the NL in hitting between 1971 and 1989. ROLLIE FINGERS played for the Oakland Athletics from 1968 to 1976. The pitcher also played for the San Diego Padres (1977-1980) and the Milwaukee Brewers (1981-1985) during his 17-year major league career. Fingers, who was known for his sharp slider, notched 341 career saves and appeared in 16 World Series games. In 1981, he won both the American League MVP and Cy Young Award. Fingers was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1992. In 19 Major League seasons (1965-1983), right-handed starting pitcher FERGUSON JENKINS won 284 games, including 6 consecutive seasons with the Chicago Cubs in which he won 20 or more games while striking out 200 or more. National League Cy Young winner in 1971, he led the league in wins twice, made the All-Star team twice, and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1991. BILL CAMPBELL, a relief specialist, also had a long big league career (1973-1987). With the Minnesota Twins in 1976 set an AL record for wins by a reliever (17). Moving to Boston as a free agent the following year, he won his second consecutive Fireman of the Year award from "The Sporting News". Fine condition.
