One of my favorite returns, only took a week from Seattle. Been waiting forever to get some good pictures of Mr. Staton, finally two showed up. Mr. Staton asked for more. :o)

Here is one many might find strange. One of my favorite players during the 70's was Bernie Carbo. He was included in my list of a handful of players I wanted on the Tigers. Well, while doing a little web surfing recently, I found a small little article saying the Tigers signed Carbo to a minor league deal during the players strike in 1981. He ended up playing a couple months for Toledo that summer. That was all I needed to make this custom card:

Just had a success from Mike Kilkenny from his new address in Canada. I've been trying to get him TTM for years - thrilled to finally have this success. Let me know if anyone needs the address.

Thank you Jim, for sending me the signed card of JASON JIMINEZ! I now have signed cards of every living Tiger except for eight (and also a lot of decesed Tigers on cards).

I picked up a couple from Net 54 site; 1955 Bowman Steve Gromek and Rufus Crawford. Although Crawford never appeared in a game with Detroit he was featured on the 55 Bowman set.
