Rawlings Official Major League Baseball (printed league and president information worn away). In 1988, the Detroit Tigers had their seventh consecutive winning season under manager Sparky Anderson. Seven of the signing players are from that team: DOYLE ALEXANDER (b. 1950) (starting pitcher), MATT NOKES (b. 1963) (catcher), DARRELL EVANS (b. 1947) (DH), RAY KNIGHT (b. 1952) (1B), GARY PETTIS (b. 1958) (CF), CHET LEMON (b. 1955) (RF) and LARRY HERNDON (b. 1953) (DH and pinch hitter). CHILI DAVIS (b. 1960), a California Angel in 1988, never played for the Tigers. BOB BOONE (b. 1947) and LUIS POLONIA (b. 1963), were members of the Oakland A's that year. Boone never played for the Tigers, but Polonia did so a decade later (1999-2000). Anderson, Lemon, Evans and Herndon were all part of the Tigers' World Champion team of 1984, which won 104 games and is considered one of baseball's greatest teams. Four of the other signers here earned championship rings with other teams: Boone from the 1980 Phillies, Knight from the 1986 Mets, Davis from the 1991 Twins and two Yankee teams (1998-1999), and Polonia from the 1995 Braves and 2000 Yankees. SPARKY ANDERSON (1934-2010), who entered the Hall of Fame in 2000, managed two of baseball's all-time greatest teams: the Cincinnati's "Big Red Machine" of 1975/76 as well as the 1984 Tigers. Soiled and stained. Some signatures faint, but all remain very legible. Otherwise, fine condition.
