This next BUI actually took place the same night as the Michael Jordan debacle I covered earlier. Good thing I had a backup card in this instance.
Date: June 30, 2021
Time of Bid: 12:24:30 AM
Card: 1990 Fleer #227 Danny Darwin AUTO
What Was I Thinking?:
Darwin has always been one of those guys who shows up in a pile of Brewers someone sends me, either in a trade or just to get rid of them. I can't really say I remember his short stint with Milwaukee, being that he was here just before I would have achieved sports consciousness. A Basset hound of a man, Darwin always looked like he would sound like Trusty from Lady and the Tramp. It was hard to find anything with Darwin's voice on it, but I was able to track down a recent podcast episode where he was interviewed. (FF to about 24:30 for the start of his segment.) Turns out I was pretty darn close with my estimation, that hard Texas drawl would be perfect for all future Don Bluth dog movies.
An autographed card for 99 cents is a great deal, better than you can even do for a TTM request, considering today's postage rates. This will have a good home in my random auto binder.
