1972 Topps – John Danks
The last few days I have heard a lot of talk that John Danks may be going to the Yankees. The talk has seemed to slow down, and I am glad. John was part of the package that came to the Sox in the Brandon McCarthy trade. He has been a solid pitcher for the Sox ever since. You could argue that he was the most consistent pitcher on the staff last season.
This picture was taken last season as the Sox were signing for the fans on the last home game of the season. He really seemed like one of the good guys that day. Normally bigger stars will not sign on the sweet spot for free. You have to pay them to do that. John signed a ball for me right on the sweet spot. That one is now proudly displayed on my shelf.
