#86) DON SHAW
Don Shaw was selected by the New York Mets in the 35th round of the free agent draft on June 8, 1965. He made his major league debut in a Mets uniform at Shea Stadium on April 11, 1967. The left hander was used out of the bullpen for two seasons before being selected by the Montreal Expos as the 40th pick in the 1968 expansion draft.
After retiring from baseball he served as a Regional Manager of a National Employee Benefits company. Don is now a 20 year veteran of the health insurance industry that operates his own business at Midwest Health Store Plan in Lake Saint Louis, Missouri.
I created Don Shaw's card in the set from a autographed index card purchased from Vabella Publishing and Printing on November 18, 2009.
