      baseball with team signatures

      I am not a huge baseball fan. But as a kid my Dad got me a baseball signed by the team of the 1969 Newark Co-Piots. I did a google search and found your post. Do you know any team members? Are any famous? I did a search and found Earl Torgenson's name and some info on him. But was wondering about it when i uncovered the ball in a box in my storage.
      Any help would be cool.
      I am also going to post on this forum too and ask.

        Chiming in very late here, so I don't know if anyone will check back, but, here goes. I have a little information on the two teams during that era. I attended a Clinton Pilots game in August of 1973, a 5 - 0 victory over the Quincy Cubs. Jim Leyland was the manager. Future Detroit Tiger shortstop, Mark Wagner was also on that team. The 1973 Newark Co-Pilots had Robin Yount in his only minor league season. I'll check back to see if I can provide more later as well.
