August 29, 2013 JACKPOT !!!!! 11 Returns Today

Hit the jackpot today as I got back 11 returns.... but then if you mailed out over 50 TTM requests a week ago like I did, then 11 back a week later is about right.

Pat Gillick.
was a minor league pitcher in the Baltimore Orioles organization in the early 1960s but he had arm trouble and that was that. He joined the Colt 45s in 1964 as an asst farm director and stayed with the Astros until 1974, then joined the Yankees, Blue Jays, Orioles, Mariners and Phillies. He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2010.

Tim Johnson
I had made some customs of Mr Johnson with the LA Dodgers and Milwaukee Brewers but I got back 4 different items back. Not sure if Mr Johnson kept my customs and sent these back or he sent me someone else's items by mistake and mine to someone else. So if anyone has my customs, I may have your cards....

Chris Floethe
was a pitcher in the Oakland A's minor league system from 1968-1974. He tried to sign the front of the cards but his ink pen wouldn't work on the glossy he signed them all on the back.

Norm Bass
pitched for the Kansas City Athletics from 1961-63 before his career was cut short by rheumatoid arthritis. He also played football in the AFL with the Denver Broncos in 1964.

Nick Koback
was a bonus baby catcher signed out of high school so he was on the Pirates roster at 18 years old. He was mostly a bullpen catcher then spent the rest of his career in the minors.

Ron Samford
played infield for the NY Giants, Detroit Tigers and Washington Senators from 1954-1959

Mike Hedlund

Tom House 
pitched for the Braves, Red Sox and Mariners from 1971 to1978 and was the Texas Rangers pitching coach from 1985-1992 but he will always be remembered for catching Hank Aaron's 715th home run in the Braves bullpen

Chuck Hartenstein 
was a relief pitcher in the 1960s with the Cubs, Pirates, Cardinals and Red Sox whose nickname was Twiggy. He pitched in the minors from 1971 until 1976 when in 1977 he made the expansion Toronto Blue Jays.
