A Lenny Randle autograph

Lenny Randle was traded to the Mets in 1977 following an altercation with Texas Rangers managerĀ Frank Lucchesi, and he turned out to be one of the best players on the 98-loss team.

Arguably his most memorable Mets moment came as a result of circumstances outside of his control – Randle was at-bat when the lights went out at Shea during the 1977 New York City blackout.

I got this card signed through a private signing conducted by a SportsCollectors.Net member. It is the 861st addition to my all-time Mets roster autograph collection project.
