Larry Jaster and Ron Tompkins

Larry Jaster singed three cards for me, including his 1967, 1968 and 1969 Topps.

And Ron Tompkins signed his 1966 Topps card, already signed by Larry Stahl.

I still have about 15 requests outstanding, so I should have some consistent returns fora few weeks.

Ken Berry and Joe McCabe

Today I received a very quick return from Ken Berry, who signed his 1966, 1967, 1968 and 1975 Topps in just seven days.

I also received a return from Joe McCabe, who signed his 1964 Topps rookie card, already signed by Jerry McNertney.

Mike Adamson, Dick Drago and Jerry Grote Returns

I received three nice returns today.

Mike Adamson signed his 1969 Topps rookie card already signed by Merv Rettenmund.  He also signed his 1971 Topps card.  Unfortunately, Roger Freed passed away in 1996 when he was only 49 years old.  I enclosed $10 with my request.

Dick Drago signed his 1971, 1974, 1975 and 1976 Topps. I really like how the 1976 Topps look signed.  The cards are a little boring on their own, but are great for autographs.  I have a complete set and try to include them with my requests when working on my 1972 or 1978 sets.

And Jerry Grote signed his 1972 Topps as well as a Ron Lewis '69 Mets postcard.  I enclosed $10 with this request as well.

Cloyd Boyer, Danny Cater and Ted Savage

Three more returns today, including a nice vintage card.

Cloyd Boyer signed his 1952 Topps in ballpoint.  I had this one returned to me once with a bad address, but the forwarding address worked fine.

Danny Cater singed his 1972 Topps for $5.  I'm not sure why I hadn't sent this card to him before.  I've been trying to add to this set, and like Mr. Cater, there are some good signers that have relatively expensive high number cards.  But I already had this card, so I should have sent it out long ago.  I think I have about 465 signed cards from this set.

Finally, Ted Savage signed his 1968 and 1969 Topps for me.

Nate Oliver

After getting shut out yesterday, I received one return today.

Nate Oliver signed his 1965, 1966, 1968 and 1969 Topps for me.  I had sent to him about 15 years ago and he signed his 1965 Topps for me then, but this is a bit of an upgrade, especially since he signed this one nicely in blue sharpie.  The one he signed previously was in faint ballpoint.

Dave Rader Return

Just one return today.  Dave Rader was kind enough to sign his 1974, 1975, 1976 and 1979 Topps for me.

Giusti, Keough, Oldis and Stahl Returns

A four return day!  I son't know the last time that happened.  All four of these requests were sent out on the same day, 10 days ago.  I sent a few more that day as well.

Dave Giusti signed his 1962, 1966 and 1969 Topps.

Marty Keough signed his 1958 and 1962 Topps.  The 1958 is an upgrade to my existing signed card, which is very off-center, almost mis-cut. I sent that one to Mr. Keough 16 years ago!

Here's the one I sent to him in 2003:

Bob Oldis signed his 1953 Topps.  There aren't too many more from this set that I can send out.  I either have them, or the player is deceased.

Finally, Larry Stahl signed his 1966, 1969 and 1970 Topps for me.

Larry Bowa, Ron Hansen and Fritz Peterson Returns

Three more returns today.  I'M really getting used to these multiple-return days.  Hopefully I can keep up my rate of requests.

Larry Bowa signed his 1973, 198 and 1983 Topps.

Ron Hansen signed his 1962 and 1968 Topps.

And Fritz Peterson signed his 1968, 1971 and 1973 Topps.
