This card is from the 1998 Fleer Tradition set. The photo depicts Mr. Padre with a jersey and pen in hand, chatting up the fans. No doubt, he is about to make someone very happy by signing the jersey.
The rumor mill has it that Gwynn may be part of an ownership group looking to purchase control of the Padres. If this is true and Gwynn’s group get the rights to the Padres, that would be a huge step in revitalizing the fan base.
