Dave Roberts Return

My returns are trickling in, with one more arriving today.

Dave Roberts signed his 1973, 1976, 1979 and 1980 Topps.  He also enclosed a signed religious pamphlet.

There are several Dave Roberts that played in the majors.  This Dave Roberts, the 3rd baseman and catcher, played from about 1972 - 1982.  Another Dave Roberts, a pitcher, played from 1969 to 1981 and is now deceased.  While getting some cards ready to send to Mr. Roberts, I discovered this and even had a card ready to send out that was for the now-deceased player.

I asked Mr. Roberts in my letter how often he gets cards for the wrong Dave Roberts, and he replied about 1 in 20 letters has the wrong card.
