Failure #3 (sort of): Brooks Robinson
Could it be? Two failures on one day? Yep, on the same day that I received the return from Rollie Fingers, I also received this letter.
While this wasn't quite as frustrating as Mazeroski's return to sender, it was rejection never-the-less. Brooks Robinson included a kind letter saying that because of technology, more people have his address than ever before. He apologized and pointed me to his website if I would like to purchase an autograph.
It did soften the failure a little bit to receive a Brooks Robinson postcard, but alas, it was not signed - not even with a printed signature.
