These Vintage Angels Were Lost But Now Are Found - Part 2

More of the goodies I received at the start of the season from a fellow pocket schedule collector.

A couple of little cutout Anaheim
Not sure what these are from.  
They're on photo type paper and the backs are blank so they're not from a magazine.
Maybe from a sheet of some sort?
Definitely late 80's since the stadium is enclosed for the Rams.

Dominican Baseball League roster signed by Manager Winston Llenas for a game on November 28, 1987.
His team Aguilas (Eagles) was playing the Escogido (Selected?) in apparently the Campeonato Nacional (National Championship) which I think the Eagles won.
Llenas played for the Angels from 1968-1975.
There's no record of him being a coach for the Angels, but he was a coach for the Blue Jays in 1988.

1960's era team issued 5x7 photo card signed in ballpoint by Bill Rigney.

1966 Dexter Press postcard signed in ballpoint by Jim Fregosi.

A letter to a young fan signed by Walter G. Shannon.
Shannon was the Scouting Director for the Angels in the 70's and was the father of Wally Shannon who played for the Cardinals in 1959-1960, thus the mixup with the writer thinking that the elder Shannon with the Angels was the younger MLBer.

Some pretty sweet stuff to add to my Angels collection.
