Default share my few vintage

Just want to show a few of my vintage cards. I love my Maris card, he is my home town hero. I met him back in the day and he was so nice. Same time met Mickey Mantle not a nice man. Roger was so nice he talked to me till i had to go. Met Mantle for the 2nd time at Roger Maris funeral. I sat 6 rows back from his casket. As his casket passed me tears ran all over me. I just sat and cried like a young man will for the loss of his hero. I have sat next to hi resting place many times, and think what a great man he was.

I picked up the same Maris over the winter after watching some shows that focused on his magical season. Good story, nice to hear he was a nice person!
