Today I received a return from Bob Smith, who signed his 1958 and 1959 Topps for me. Which Bob Smith? Good question! Bob G. Smith. Which Bob G. Smith? Good question! Not Bobby Gene Smith, which is who is pictured on the front of Bob Gilchrist Smith's 1958 Topps card. Confusing? You bet. Which is probably why it took my seven years to get this card signed.
Mr. Smith signed the back of the 1958 card since the picture isn't him, but the stats are. He included a pre-printed note explaining the situation and that he and Bobby Gene Smith were good friends in their playing days. He signed the front of the 1959 Topps card.
I also received a dozen Gold Glove baseballs I bought from a fellow SCN member.
