No. 34

One of the very, very few sports stars who I thought was awesome. His, Kent Hrbek's and Nolan Ryan's are the only baseball cards I own.

Kirby Puckett died Monday, age 44.

I can't believe how young he was...I remember the 87 World Series, and evidently he was in his 20s! Who knew. How old is Kent Hrbek? And Chuck Knoblauch? His nephew went to Olson.
