TTM #70- Finally!

Hey guys, Drew back here. Well, my classes are now over for the summer, with only finals seperating me from the sweet summertime! I can't say I won't be busy though, with a few vacations scattered throughout the summer, as well as 3 amazing events. First on that agenda, we just learned about, is that we got tickets to see Paul McCartney's On The Run Tour in Yankee Stadium on July 15th! I couldn't believe it when I heard the news about this, and I absolutely can't wait to go! Next, I'm going to a Yankee game in August, and I'll be hitting up the White Plains Card Show most likely, featuring some awesome autograph guests! So, I've got a lot to look forward to, but I can't let those things affect me over the next 2 weeks. Oh, I did say I wasn't going to post for a weeks, HA! Yeah, who would've thought I'd be right back here again? Typical me.

So anyway, it took a few tries, but I recently got a semi-success from my TTM miracle! Check it out:

None other than Stan "The Man" Musial sent me his autographed postcard! After numerous tries of getting him to sign a custom, I gave up hope and requested one of these, which are normally given to you when asked. I'm sure that these were pre-signed, because unfortunately Mr. Musial, at 90 years old, isn't getting any younger. Recently, Dad bought me an autographed baseball of his off of Craigslist, and even though the autograph wasn't beautiful, it was worth it, because the guy was a legend.

Just by reading off his list of accomplishments on the card, 3,630 hits, 6,134 total bases, 24 All Star selections, and a lifetime average of .331, makes you feel like he's in the top 10 at least for greatest hitters the game has ever seen! For absolutely no cost, I was given this nice little commemorative autographed card of his, and I'll always cherish it! He has a beautiful signature, and is a true hero of baseball! I'm so glad I was able to add a new piece of his to my collection. 

This video truly shares how great of a person this man is. Here's a salute, and a major thank you to Mr. Stan Musial, may I wish you all the best in the future!

See Ya!
