jimmie hall through the mail success!

quite a while back, i saw on droidtrader's site that he had received a jimmie hall signed card through the mail. now, many of you know why i have been a jimmie hall collector and can guess that i quickly contacted droidtrader for mr. hall's address. he provided it, and i sent two cards off into the ether.

six months later, the former rookie home run record holder returned both cards signed. first is a 1965 topps cardand then a 1970 topps card.
while the 1970 card is his last, it's not a final tribute. he split the 1970 season between the cubs and the braves, who released after the season was over. if anyone has a photo of him in a braves uniform, please let me know - i would love to create a true final tribute!

i know that the twins have tried to bring mr. hall back for various functions, but he has chosen to stay away, which is his right. there are a lot of fans, though, that would love to see this two time all star return to the twin cities, including this one.

thank you mr. hall!

does this mean I can call you Jimmie now?

I have thought about sending some of my cards through the mail. Do you send them to the teams? or straight to the players? Do you send a self addressed envelope too? I was just wondering.
