I have been sending autograph requests to former players through the mail off and on. This past week I got one back signed. A Success!
A pretty good one too. How about a 10x All Star, winning MVP awards in two of those games, 1974 NL MVP, 5x pennant winner and named MVP in two of those series, winning a World Series in 1981, 4x Gold Glove winner and a NL record 1,207 games played.
You would think that would be enough for the Hall of Fame for Steve Garvey, guess not though. I think he will make it someday on the veterans committee. Regardless, I am a proud to finally have a Steve Garvey autograph in my MSU collection.
