Catching Up on a Bunch of Returns

I received a lot of returns this week.  Most of them arrived on Monday.

Al Worthington signed the 1963, 1967 and 1968 Topps I sent him.  He also sent me a signed 1965 Topps, two 3x5 signed photos, a signed religious pamphlet and two signed article reprints.  Wow!

 Al Weis signed his 1970 and 1971 Topps as well as a Ron Lewis 1969 Mets postcard.


Bobby Pfeil signed his 1970 and 1972 Topps and a Ron Lewis postcard.


Ernie Broglio signed a 1961 Post as well as 1962 and 1963 Topps.

Don Larsen signed his 1963 Topps.

Gary Peters signed a 1963, 1964 and 1966 Topps.


Ken McBride signed two 1964 Topps, including one I had included for him to keep, but he didn't return the 1963 Topps I had enclosed.  Oops.

John Goryl signed a 1959, 1963 and 1964 Topps.

And Bob Sadowski signed his 1963 Topps.  Did you know there are two Bob Sadowski's that played in the early to mid 60's?  Very confusing!

Phew!  That was Monday.

On Tuesday, I received a 1961 Topps Pitching Leaders card signed by Art Ditmar.  I had first sent this to Milt Pappas, who smeared his signature.  I thought I'd complete it anyway, but now I'm having second thoughts.  I might but another one and start over.

Lindy McDaniel signed a 1961 and 1963 Topps.

And today, I received a return from Frank Funk, who signed a 1963 and 1964 Topps.

It took my quite a bit of time to scan all these cards and catalog them.  I expect a few more returns in the next few days but things will really slow down over the holidays I think.
