Mahalo to Timmy Time!

A VERY big Mahalo to my good friend Timmy Time from Sports Card Forum for sending these three cards of our local boys Kurt Suzuki and Kolten Wong (Suzuki from Wailuku,HI and Wong from Hilo,HI) as well as a Matt Kemp GU jersey card. What a tremendous and much appreciated surprise. I appreciate your generosity and friendship. Mahalo

Sid Fernandez, LHP, New York Mets

Sid Fernandez was born in Honolulu, Hawaii and became one of the Greatest Pitchers of the 1980's. A LHP who played mostly for the New York Mets, Fernandez compiled a 114-96 record with 1,743 strikeouts over a 14 year career. Proud of his Hawaiian Roots, Fernandez wore uniform number 50, in honor of Hawaii being the 50th state. The theme song Hawaii Five O was often played before his starts at Shea Stadium. Fernandez played for the World Champion New York Mets in 1986.
