Jerry Remy Fan Favorites Autograph

Here is yet another Fan Favorites autograph, of former player and current broadcaster Jerry Remy. 

Remy fits the definition of Fan Favorite.  He is a very charismatic commentator during Red Sox games and was elected President of Red Sox Nation back in 2007.  He is also a Massachusetts native.  I do think his playing career probably qualified as well.  Remy spent seven of his ten seasons with the Red Sox and made his only All Star team as a member of the 1978 Red Sox.  Remy appears here on the 1982 Topps design.  1982 was one of Remy's better seasons.  He played a full season for the first time since 1978 and hit .280/.337/.324 with 178 hits, 89 runs scored and 16 stolen bases.  He was coming off of a season in which he hit .307/.368/.338 with nine stolen bases.  1978 would have been a better choice though.  That was his best season in Boston, as he hit .278/.321/.350 with 162 hits, 87 runs scored, and 30 stolen bases.
