Billy DeMars signed this 1973 Topps #486 Phillies Coaches card and graciously included the signed Diamond Signatures card. He sent them back, and a signed index card, in 9 days from his home in Florida.
Billy was also a radioman in a PBY Catalina flying boat during WWII. Fascinating.
I recently came across this Tim DeCinces card in a quarter bin recently, so I figured I'd give it shot trying to get him to sign it. Eleven days later I got it back. I mailed it to the Beach Pit BBQ Headquarters. Tim, if you haven't figured it out, is the son of Doug DeCinces.
After baseball Tim founded Beach Pit BBQ, a BBQ chain in Southern California. I hear it's really good.
John Gelnar signed his 1965 Topps #143 rookie card and a 1970 Topps #393 Seattle Pilots card in 18 days from his home in Oklahoma.
John was nice enough to answer a few simple questions for me.
I recently received this 1993 Fleer ProCards Nate Oliver card. I didn't realize Nate had been a coach in the Angels farm system, (he actually managed for 3 years) so I picked up a 1965 Topps at my LCS and sent them through the mail for an autograph. Nate used a ballpoint so they're kinda hard to see, but signatures are there and I'm happy to have them.
Nate is currently an instructor for Cal Baseball Club which is where I sent the cards.
