Bob Lemon (1920-2000)

Like the recent Enos Slaughter addition, this was an eBay find - a low price, but no guarantee that the penned autographed 3x5 is legit. For now, I will count it as the next success in my collection. 

Bob Lemon was certainly a star in his time. He was a lifetime member of the Cleveland Indians except for a brief hiatus while he served in the military during World War II (as many of his peers did at that time). He was an excellent pitcher who was also known as having a solid bat. 

Lemon passed away in 2000, so this one adds to my collection of those who have passed on.
