Purchased Autograph - Jimmie Reese

Cheap on ebay a while ago.  I don't know who Wendi is but I don't care either.  It's a Jimmie Reese autograph!  You don't get any better in Angels lore than Jimmie Reese.

From 1972 until his death in 1994 Jimmie was a conditioning coach for the Angels.  He was often seen during BP hitting fungos.  His number 50 was retired by the Angels.

Looks like this postcard was a team issue in 1986.  I'm not sure why the back was stamped JUN 28 1990.

  1. he's a pretty cool guy, he signed my score card when I was a kid, standing by the Angels dugout during batting practice. He asked me what position I played, I said pitcher, and he said "you stick with that, the Angels are always looking for more pitchers!" He was amazing with that bat.
