Like this guy

The Bruins got Paul Reid and Guy Allen for him. They traded Dryden right after they drafted him.

    When Tony Gwynn was drafted by the San Diego Padres, the franchise was in the middle of its 12th losing season in its 13th year of play.

    But on June 9, 1981, the addition of Gwynn changed the course of a team – and began a love affair between the player and a city.

    Gwynn was taken in the third round of the MLB Draft by the Padres – but that was not the only good news he received that day. With their selection in the 10th round of the NBA Draft, the San Diego Clippers selected Gwynn – who had been a standout player for San Diego State in both sports.

    I want everyone to know that Todd was very helpful to me with a submission issue.

    He’s a good guy.

    The one on the right is now graded.

    The one on the left was misplaced.
    Different service levels.
    Todd got some one to help me right away. 👍

    Johnnie Unitas was drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1955 in the 9th round. He never threw a pass for them and was cut. The Baltimore Colts picked him, and he became a Hall of Fame quarterback.

    Retired dealer and avid collector of U.S. type coins, 19th century presidential campaign medalets and selected medals. In recent years I have been working on a set of British coins - at least one coin from each king or queen who issued pieces that are collectible. I am also collecting at least one coin for each Roman emperor from Julius Caesar to ... ?

    Bill Jones- the Steelers drafted Len Dawson in 1957 and he threw 17 passes in 3 years for them.
    So they passed on 2 future HOF’ers
    at QB.
    Dawson was wasted for 5 years by Pitt and Cleveland and still made the HOF.
