Whitey Ford and a Few Other Returns

Last fall I sent a 1954 Topps to Whitey Ford to sign.  He did, but he signed it in ballpoint.  Twice.  An odd return that I've wanted to upgrade for a while.  Recently I did.  I sent him another card and a $20 check and got back a very nicely signed card in blue sharpie, and he even added his jersey number.  It looks great.

Coincidentally, I also bought a 1959 Topps signed by Whitey Ford from a fellow member of  I also bought one signed by Enos Slaughter.  Mr. Slaughter was a very good signer through the mail until he passed away in 2002, about a year before I started collecting.

My younger son added to his Mets collection yesterday.  Bill Wakefield signed his 1965 Topps for him.
