  1. Bob,

    I was doing some research on Jones' card issues and found this site as I was preparing to send him my 1963 to sign from my childhood collection. What great looking cards!!! Topps should hire you to do their cards for them as you do better than they do! Is there anyway you can be persuaded to make one each for me so I can send them too?!!?
