I really can't believe this one. Duke Snider lives in California. I live in Virginia. I only sent this card out six days ago and already have it back. Amazing.
Snider charges $5 for to autograph a card. This is a great bargain considering he's a Hall of Famer. Factor in the quickness of the reply his nice signature and it's an even greater bargain. I may have to send a baseball to him soon.
Snider was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1980 and one of the most popular Dodgers of all time. He finished his career with a .295 batting average and 407 home runs. He was a member of the '55 and '59 World Series Champion Dodger teams, hitting four home runs in each series.
Here's a link to an AP story that ran about Snider a few years ago: Duke Snider - The "Duke of Flatbush"
