I recently saw on SCN that Alex Johnson was signing some things through the mail, so I sent him a letter asking permission to send him the 1971 Sports Illustrated with him on the cover. A bit later I received my letter back in the SASE and written on the letter was "Send it." in blue sharpie. So I did. Another little bit later I received my SI.
There's Alex Johnson's autograph on his right insleeve.
I'd gotten Alex about 8 years ago or so. He signed a baseball card and index card and included a signed Reds postcard.
I had wanted him to sign this SI for a long time but was always afraid to send it.
Glad I finally did.
