Why sponsor Bob Dernier's page? As an 8-year-old in 1982, I had the unbelievable opportunity to play catch with Bobby D. prior to a Phillies game. He was everything a professional baseball player should be - polite, accommodating and approachable - and that always stuck with me. For several years after our meeting, I wrote to Bobby each year and I always received back a personalized, autographed picture. (I continued this practice even after he was traded to the Cubs).
Presented here is my favorite Bob Dernier card. He shared his regular 1982 Topps card with Ozzie Virgil and Mark Davis on a "Future Stars" card, but he was granted his very own card in the '82 Topps Traded series.
Thanks again, Bobby D.
