Hal Smith

It's been very confusing over the years to send cards to Hal Smith, because there are two Hal Smiths that played in the 1950's and 60's.  Making it even more confusing, they were both catchers.

I received a response from Hal W. Smith, who played for many different teams, including the Pirates, A's, Orioles and Reds.

The other Hal Smith, Hal R. Smith, played many years for the Cardinals.  Unfortunately, he passed away in 2014.  He was a generous signer, as is Hal W.
