Lew Krausse and Fred Valentine

I came home from the weekend to find two returns in the mailbox.

Lew Krausse signed his 1966, 1968 and 1973 Topps.

Fred Valentine signed his 1966, 1967 and 1968 Topps, and also included a signed postcard-sized Orioles photo and stat card.

I've sent out 101 requests so far this year.  That's the most for me since 2015, and I'll most likely pass that year's total of 113.  In 2014, I sent out 200, so I won't beat that.

Ken "Hawk" Harrelson Return

Just one return today.  Ken "Hawk" Harrelson signed his 1964 and 1971 Topps for me and added his nickname as an inscription.  He didn't return the 1970 Topps I (think) I had included.

Two returns today:

Bob Saverine signed his 1964, 1967 and 1968 Topps for me, and also answered a question I had asked in my letter.
