Gil McDougald Return and Zoilo Versalles Purchase

Today in the mail I received the 1952 Sport Magazine that I sent to Gil McDougald. He signed it nicely with the blue sharpie I included and he even returned the pen. I hadn't counted on that, and it looks like my return postage was 1 cent short. Hopefully that didn't inconvenience Mr. McDougald. I included $10 with my request.

I also received a Zoilo Versalles signed picture that I bought on eBay. Mr. Versalles was voted the American League MVP in 1965 when the Twins went to (and lost) their first World Series. The Cuban-born player has an unusual first name. In fact, Topps misprinted his name on his 1961 baseball card as "Zorro". Nice.
