    Funny - he's at the top of a very short list of "favorite non-Brewer" players for me too. I met him at a card show in Chicago in the mid 90's - he was just set up at a table in the hotel lobby - no cordons or security - and genuinely seemed to enjoy talking baseball with the group of folks who had gathered around him. What struck me besides his graciousness was his incredibly accurate memory - one Cubs fan asked him about a specific game at Wrigley from some years earlier and Gwynn described the game circumstances - pitcher, who was on base, pitch sequence, etc. with remarkable detail. It made him almost as gifted in talking about baseball as he was playing the game. RIP.

    One of those rare great players who always had positive publicity. You never read or heard anything bad about Gwynn.
    And eight batting titles, mostly during the steroid era, is insane. What a legend.

    I don't care at all about the Padres as a team, but Gwynn was one of my favorite players. It's sad that he's gone.

    When I joined ebay in July, 1998, my very first bid (and win) was for a Tony Gwynn Topps RC because I never managed to pull one from a pack and I HAD to have one. I sent it to BGS in September, 2000 and it came back an "8". It's still in my PC.

    Godspeed Mr. Padre.
