I sent two index cards to Jim Bunning on 6/1 and got them back signed on 6/30. I had asked for an inscription about him striking out Ted Williams 3 times in one game. Bunning is one of only two pitchers to have ever done that.
Bunning signed both index cards, but didn't add any inscriptions.
I'm getting close to completing my 3,000 Hit Club Bat Card Collection. Cap Anson does not have any bat cards so that leaves me with only needing Derek Jeter and Honus Wagner, after picking up this Tris Speaker bat card off comc.com.
Tris Speaker played for the Red Sox, Indians, Senators, and Athletics between 1907 and 1928.
Speaker ended his career with a .345 career batting average and still holds the record for most career doubles (792) and outfield assists (449).
I'm hoping that my birthday will yield some funds that I can put towards a Honus Wagner bat card as well as a Jeter so I can finish up this project which I started over 3 years ago.
