Thank you all for your kind and encouraging words after the passing of my mother. Although it was difficult to leave my siblings in California and return to my home in Texas, it was kinda nice to find a stack of good mail to go through. I love getting mail.
The through-the-mail autograph returns.
Well, he sent me this signed 1966 Topps. I dont know if this is the original one I sent or a replacement, but I'm thankful that he took the time to sign and send me one. I'll send him another and tell him to keep it for someone else that has the same issue I did.
If I count from the time I originally sent the card, this return would be 202 days.
Next up on the 73 Topps is Ray Rippelmeyer.
In 1985 he became the first Texas Rangers player to hit for cycle. And this I did not know: McDowell actually played in the Angels system briefly. The Angels signed him in Spring of 1992 but after six games with the AAA Edmonton Trappers he was released on May 14.
Bob Gladieux rocks!
