Bobby Lee Bonds poster…a childhood remembrance

Growing up on Clarendon Dr. in San Jose, CA all the kids in the neighborhood were huge Giants’ fans. Pretty much all we did each summer was talk Giants, trade baseball cards, and play street baseball. One of the more exciting days was when my friend Bob DeBarr became the first kid on the block to get this Bobby Bonds poster in his room. Man…it was the coolest! I always connected this Bobby Bonds poster with Bob and our “wonder years.”

Sadly, Bob passed away on the 4th of July this year. This posting is in his memory.
