“catfish” R.I.P.

I’ve been collecting autographs through the mail since I was a kid, and this past year started the unenviable task of trying to collect the autographs of the entire 1969 Oakland A’s team. These players are long retired and generally sign a lot quicker than your modern day MLB player. Obviously, some of these players are no longer with us, so if anyone has one of these autographed cards lying around, i would be willing to trade/buy it. email: cococrispafro@gmail.com and of course, if you need any of these addresses, please feel free to email as well.

#27 Lew Krauss (signed, 1 week)
