Shannon Raybon spent six years as a trainer in the Twins organization. Since I had a handful of his baseball cards from those minor league team sets, I thought it would be fun to add his signature to my collection. Mr. Raybon graciously obliged and added a note informing me that he left baseball and the Twins in 1989 to become a firefighter in Orlando, which he is still doing today. Unfortunately he only signed the backs of the cards, but I'm assuming he doesn't get many autograph requests and, in all fairness, I did not specifically ask him to sign the fronts.
