Rest in Peace, Ralph Kiner

I never was able to get my hands on an autograph from Hall of Famer, Ralph Kiner, so it was especially sad for me to hear of his passing last week. Mr. Kiner was an incredible player and long-time broadcaster in baseball.

My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. 

Tony La Russa

I was a little surprised to find this TTM return from one of the next class of baseball Hall of Famers. 

Manager Tony La Russa is one of the most successful managers of the recent few decades of Major League Baseball. He has transitioned from a successful on-field career to an executive position with the MLB. 

He signed for me on a 3x5 note card, in blue sharpie, but unfortunately he signed on the lined side of the card.  I can't be too picky.  Thanks to Mr. La Russa for taking the time to sign!
