Cookie Rojas - Second Attempt

I sent a few cards to Cookie Rojas back in 2011 and didn't get a response.  I saw a fellow collector on SCN get a return from him so I decided to try again.

He signed his 1965 and 1972 Topps for me, and kept the 1963 Topps I had also sent.  I"ll try again in a few months and include a small donation to get my 63 signed.

It looks like I missed posting a couple of returns.

Bob Conley signed his 1959 Topps for me that I got back a little over a week ago:

And J.C. Martin signed his 1960, 1966 and 1968 Topps.  I received these on the same day as Bob Conley.

Dan Dobbek

Former Twin Dan Dobbek neatly signed his 1959, 1960 and 1961 Topps for me in nine days.

I hope to receive a few more requests back in the next couple of days but need to send a few more out to keep them coming back consistently.

Bill Virdon

My returns are becoming semi-regular again.  I'd like to get back to getting at least one return each week.

Today I received a 1959 and 1962 Topps from Bill Virdon in just eight days, including the holiday.

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.
