happy father's day dad

a while back i wrote about the 1966 topps jim lefebvre card i gave to my dad for father's day when i was younger - probably about 30 years ago.  i recently had the opportunity, through hall of fame sports, to get a copy signed by the 1965 nl rookie of the year and jumped at the chance.
it's nice and bold, not like most of the cards you see signed by frenchie, who i understood to be a reluctant signer.  whatever the case, i am pretty stoked to have this in my collection.  i just wish i had sent that rawlings glove in as well.

thanks jim, hall of fame sports, and you too dad.
