Private Signing: Salome Barojas

Salome Barojas had an incredible 1983 season for the Sox. He was by far the best member of their bullpen in that division winning season. He put up a 170 ERA+ over 87 innings. Unfortunately, like many of his teammates, his magic ran out in the playoffs, as he gave up 4 hits and 2 runs in 1 inning. Still, they may not have gotten there without him.

Barojas has been an extremely difficult autograph in the years since his playing career ended. This is pretty much entirely due to the fact that he lives in Mexico. Luckily, there was a recent private signing conducted with Mr. Barojas in Mexico. The price was very reasonable, so I sent one of each Sox card I had. I’m very happy to add these to the collection!
