|Jose DeJesus Signed Card|
In August I noticed a few successes on Sports Collectors Net from former pitcher, Jose DeJesus and quickly put his 1991 Tastykake postcard in the mail. When my envelope postmarked from Puerto Rico came back - I honestly did not know who it was from. My guess is that Jose did not have the card in his personal collection, which would explain why he switched it out. Wish it had at been a Phillies card...
I exchanged a couple letters with 1964 Phillie, Frank Thomas earlier this year. He really seemed like a very nice guy and I enjoyed reading his stories about his playing days. Some of you may have even written him a letter after I posted his TTM information. Anyway, in a first, I received an unsolicited piece of mail from a professional player this week when Mr. Thomas sent me a legit Christmas card!
I have to say it was pretty cool to see in the mail. Kudos to my wife for hanging it on the pantry door beside cards from Aunt Gerry and Grandma Melvena!
