In the summer of 1973, the Giants visited the Pirates and my dad scheduled our trip so that I could spend some time in the lobby of the hotel where the Giants were staying in order to get some autographs, because I had just become interested in that. On one sheet of paper, I have Juan Marichal, Claude Osteen, Dave Kingman, Chris Speier, Gary Thomasson, Bobby Bonds, and several others.
That day and game that evening was beyond cool.
