August 26, 2013 Joe Durham and Bob Farley

I finally mailed out a boatload of TTM requests last week and the first two came back today.

Joe Durham
Mr Durham was signed by the St Louis Browns in 1953 and was with the Orioles in 1954 for their first year in Baltimore. He then spent two years in the military in 1955-56  He came back in 1957, had a good year in San Antonio,  had a better 1958 in Vancouver and the Cardinals drafted him in the 1958 Rule V Draft. He played in 6 games for the Cardinals. He has spent most of his post playing career in the Orioles Front Office.

All three of the pics I used for the cards were originally back and white but I colorized them using Photoshop. Mr Durham also wrote a nice note requesting copies of the cards.

Bob Farley...... 
played with the Giants at the beginning and at the end of the1961 season. He played with Tacoma in between. He was one of the players involved in the trade that brought Billy Pierce to the Giants so he spent the beginning of 1962 with the White Sox before being traded to the Tigers in June 1962.
