Auto Collection: Steve Sax Originals

Steve Sax was one of my all time favorite Dodgers from the 80's, and I believe Tommy Lasorda thinks the same thing. Just check out this recent story on Tommy's blog.

With Steve Sax you never knew what was going to happen. I gave the steal sign to Joey Amalfitano, who gave it to Sax on first base, but he doesn’t go. I give the sign again, but again he doesn’t go. I give the sign for a third time, but he does not go.

The batter hits into a double play and they come back to the dugout.

“Joey,” I said. “Did you see the signs?’

“I gave him the sign each time you did, Tommy,” he said.

“Manny,” I said. “Did Sax look at you?”

“Yeah, he looked at me,” replied Mota.

“Did you wink?” I wanted to know.

“Yeah I winked,” replied Mota. “But he winked back!”

Anyway, here is a 2004 Topps Originals autographed 1987 Topps card.
