i've had some more through the mail autograph successes over the last month or so, including one former dodger - jose hernandez. hernandez signed both his 2004 topps
for me from his current coaching assignment with the orioles triple-a affiliate in norfolk.
the other successes i've had aren't dodgers, but they are players from the 1978 topps set which is very nice. i think i am closing in on 300 cards signed from the set.
i recall that easterly shared space with rick rhoden on a 1975 topps 4-player rookie card, but i can also easily picture his solo 1976 topps card. here, we can see that his mustache has filled in quite a bit since that 1976 topps card was issued.
don sent me his best wishes, which is great. his actual signature is a very small part of the writing there. he's got a burt reynolds thing going on there, which i suspect was very popular with the ladies in the late 1970's.
three players signed notes for me as well as their cards. former twin jerry terrell
i remember miller from his time with the angels, although he had his contract purchased by the blue jays during the 1979 season, so didn't get to pitch in the playoffs with the halos that year. miller got his only major league hit (he spent a season or two with the mets in the early 1980's) off of dodger burt hooton.
last, but not least, here's roy thomas, who signed his 4-player rookie card
thanks to all for signing my cards!
