Recent Royals: 1996 Leaf Signature Joe Randa Bronze

I have very few card collections given my limited resources and space, but I did decide some time ago to begin collecting on-card Royals autographs. It’s been a blast so far trying to track these things down and this is the latest addition to my collection. To view the cards currently in the collection, take a look at the Gallery. If you have any on-card Royals autos- especially one you don’t see in that gallery there- chances are I need them so don’t hesitate to drop me a line!

Apparently his nickname is The Joker. I'm not buying it.

A Kansas City legend! No, seriously. Joe Randa holds 2 Kansas City Royals records. One for getting 6 hits in a 9 inning game (shared with 2 others, including Kevin Seitzer) and one for longest errorless streak at 3rd base (which means he beat out a certain Hall of Famer). Randa’s career is a little uneven. Still, he had a few years in the mid-2000s that were pretty solid. I never really saw him play as he stuck around the AL for most of his career which ended in 2006 and I’m not sure if he has any other autos (on-card or otherwise) as he was a rookie before the neo-Bowman craze and wasn’t really a big enough star to get autos in the normal products. Still, he was probably the best player on the Royals until Mike Sweeney came into his own, so there’s a possibility there’s more Randa out there for me!
