    50's and 60's Players

    Hi everybody. During the offseason, I thought that I would start trying to get old MLB players from the 1950's and 60's. Does anybody have any advice on who I should send to? Thank you all so much!

    Carl Erskine would be my first gut reaction. I think he asks for a fiver for teh special olympics. Played for Brooklyn/LA Dodgers. Threw two no hitters.

    I should've thought of Al Worthington. He lives about 45 mins from me and went to Alabama.

    Very nice. Great autograph, and the throw in stuff is pretty nice too!

    Roger Craig (requests $5 per)

    Ken Retzer is a fun guy to send to. He will usually include a few extra photos for you and he also offers to call you if you want to talk about baseball.

    He only spent a few years in the Majors (1961-64) and then was a coach for a long time in MLB... but he was the catcher on the Washington Senators when President Kennedy threw out the first pitch on opening day 1963 so there are cool photos of him and JFK that you can send.

    Send him a letter, include your phone number, and enjoy autographs and a phone call from a guy who had a really cool baseball life.

    Definitely will send to Mr. Retzer. Which address from the TTM Manager should I use for him? Thank you so much!
