    Did you pay his fee? Also, have you gotten Blas "Chico" Fernandez back yet?
    Wow, I didnt even know he charged a fee, he writes a column for a baseball blog/website in spanish that I'm an active member of, and I asked him through there if I could get his auto, he told me to write to him and he would send me back a signed photo (I told him I would send him his 61 topps card that I already had), he didnt mention a fee, I'm doubly thankful now.

    And I havent had a chance to write to Blas yet, I will be doing so sometime this week.

          I was going to send to him for my Steve Dalkowski book project in a few days...he batted against Steve in 1958 while playing with the Minot Mallards. Was also going to throw in an extra card for you, (as I will with a certain other Cuban player I'm sending to). You just saved me $5!

                        Has anyone had success with Etheridge? Gis sig came back looking like a stamp, I cannot see an indent or nothing, but I got 2 other people saying they can. Just curious. Was a gray-ish pen if it was really signed.

                          He also was President of the Gulf Coast League from its inception until 2009 and in 1960, was the manager of the Reno Silver Sox. Regarding that particular season (he managed a few other teams in the Minors), he was also the first manager to speak with me about his managerial strategies against Steve Dalkowski (who pitched with Stockton that year). Mr. Saffell's a wonderful guy and if you ever get the chance to speak with him, he'll talk your ear off, and you won't want him to stop, either!

                            • -Clinton "Butch" McCord 2/1 c/o home (Mr. McCord signed a Signature Card AND his own custom card, which looks like a dead ringer for a 1959 Topps card, stock and all! Result of a technical success, as he kept playing long after his well-known Negro League career was over...long enough to bat against Steve Dalkowski. Hilarious guy, really nice, and threw in a nice letter, too!)

                              • I interviewed both Saffell and McCord awhile back. Danny Ozark had high praise for McCord and said he kept McCord on his teams when he was managing in the minors for the Dodgers because of his veteran presence. He made it to AAA with the Dodgers but he wasn't going to come up with Hodges at 1B. He's one of the few living Negro Leaguers that played before 1950 that is still alive. Saffell is going to be 90 this year, I think or 89.
