Bible Card Sunday - Doug Jones

Doig Jones was a Major League pitcher for 7 different teams over 16 seasons.  His career record was 69 wins to 79 losses, 303 Saves and an ERA of 3.30.  Jones was a  5-time All-Star (1988-1990, 1992 & 1994) and was the NL Reliever of the Year Award Winner in 1992. 

Doug mentions his wife used a Bible verse to encourage him when he was seeking guidance during a difficult period in his life and career:
"Humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God and He will exult you in due time, casting all your cares on Him, for He cares for you."
1 Peter 5:6-7

Doug Jones is a really good TTM signer with an 88% success rate. I sent him 3 set cards (1989 Upper Deck, 1991 Upper Deck, and a 1992 Stadium Club) which he signed and included 2 of these Bible cards as well. Doug added PTL (Praise The Lord) to his signature.  He signed these cards in 73 days from his home in Covina, CA.
