Stack-O-Mail Autographs

Jean Segura signed one and kept one (I kinda knew he would but took the chance anyhow) mailed to the AZL Angels.  Took 21 days.
Chevy Clarke signed both.  Also sent to the AZL Angels.  I just wished he hadn't used ballpoint.  I mean who uses ballpoint?  The only thing I can figure is that he signed these in his hotel room using the complimentary pen.  15 days.
Former Angels farmhand PJ Forbes was very kind to sign all 3 cards I sent to him at the Altoona Curve where he's the Manager.  20 days.
Longtime Angels minor league coach Kernan Ronan added his autograph to and returned these two cards.  Kernan is coaching the AZL Angels right now.  9 days.
Tom Dukes played for the Big Club Angels in 1972.  He now lives in Arcadia, California from where he autographed this 1968 Topps and 1969 Topps.

I told Todd Greene in the letter that of all the Angels I thought he has the best looking cards.  I told him that I couldn't decide which to send so I was sending 5 and he didn't need to sign them all he could keep some.  And I meant it too.  Todd signed them all and I'm one happy camper.

Bob Chance wasn't offended at this rather beat up 1965 Topps and sweetly signed it vertically. He also signed the index card (to Me!) and took the time to answer a few simple questions.  Bob lives in West Virginia and returned these after 15 days.


  1. From what I generally remember, Todd Greene was the mid 90s version of Mike Napoli coming up through the Angels' system.

    I think injuries affected Greene's ability to be anything more than what he was with a number of MLB teams.

    Nice autographs.

  2. Looks like it was a good week for mail!
