Bobby Cox Signed Line-Up Card for the Atlanta Braves’ 1981 Season Opener vs. the Reds.
Lot 147. Bobby Cox Signed Line-Up Card for the Atlanta Braves’ 1981 Season Opener vs. the Reds. A four-time Manager of the Year with two different teams, Cox guided the Atlanta Braves to a World Championship in 1995. He retired after the 2010 season and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2014. The line-up card is made out in Cox’s hand for the Braves first game of the 1981 season, on April 10 at Fulton County Stadium. Cox signed it as “B. Cox.” The signature is gem mint 10. As expected, the 5.25” x 7” card was folded in half so that Cox could carry it in his pocked to and from home plate. The Braves defeated the Cincinnati Reds, 5-3, and a copy of the box score and an inning-by-inning account of the game accompanies the lineup card. Winning Bid $30.
