August 30, 2016  Keith Erickson

I originally sent to Keith Erickson, former UCLA, Bulls, Lakers and Suns basketball player back in 2014 but since wrote it off as a failure after not getting a return. I then got a letter last month from Mr Erickson apologizing for losing my customs after showing them to his wife. He said to make up another set for him and he would sign whatever I needed.
