The 1986 Detroit Tigers went 87-75 in the American League East, third behind the Red Sox and Yankees in the 4-division, pre-wild card era. The core of this team, including pitching ace JACK MORRIS (b. 1955) and rotation mainstay DAN PETRY (b. 1958), closer GUILLERMO "WILLIE HERNANDEZ (b. 1954), catcher LANCE PARRISH (b. 1956), infield greats DARRELL EVANS (b. 1947), ALAN TRAMMELL (b. 1958) and LOU WHITAKER (b. 1957), outfielders KIRK GIBSON (b. 1957) and CHET LEMON (b. 1955), and several others remained from the 1984 World Championship Tigers (104-58), considered one of the greatest teams of all time. Nor was this team "over the hill"; it won the Division in 1987. SPARKY ANDERSON (1934-2010), even more famous as manager of the "Big Red Machine" Cincinnati Reds of the 1970s, also remained from 1984. Signing from the coaching staff we have ALEX GRAMMAS (b. 1926) (longtime NL infielder) and VADA PINSON (1938-1995), the latter a former star player with more hits (2,757) than any player not in the Hall of Fame or on the ballot now. BOOTS DAY (b. 1947), another former player, was a Tiger scout who had formerly managed the franchise's rookie team. Other signers - FRANK TANANA (b. 1953), for example, may not have starred for the Tigers but had great careers with other teams. Tiger fans will recognize other favorites. Three signatures (Lowry, Campbell and the one we couldn't identify) overwrite printed text and are somewhat difficult to read. Otherwise, fine condition.
