TTM Tuesday (Brown, Showalter, and Gonzalez

This past week I started getting in returns from my ttm requests that I sent out this year. I got three returns.

First up is former 3rd baseman for the New York Yankees (1946 - 52, 54). Brown was a part of 4 World Championship Yankee teams.

In addition to playing baseball, Brown served his country in both WWII and the Korean War, attended Stanford, UCLA, and Tulane University and became a cardiologist before serving as the President of the American League for a decade.

I didn't have any cards of Brown so I sent index cards. he signed one for me and personalized one for each of my three boys as I requested.

Next up is three time A.L. Manager of the Year Buck Showalter. Showalter has managed four different teams. I was able to get him to sign cards from three of the team as well as a 4 x 6 photo from an episode of Seinfeld that I plan on sending to Jason Alexander.

Finally, I was able to get a few more cards signed by two time A.L. MVP Juan Gonzalez. Gonzalez was amazing to watch! He hit 434 home runs and had just over 1400 RBI during his 16 year career.

    1. Yeah, I'm hoping to get it dual signed.

  2. The Buck photo is awesome, but Juan Gone is always a good return.
