I'll shoot you a PM.Richie,
After seeing how your Oregon Ducks set came out(awesome), it got me thinking(sometimes a dangerous thing). I have a close friend, who's dad played in the Brooklyn Dodgers, and the Boston Red Sox farm systems, back in the 50's. He gave it 7 years, (stuck behind Gil Hodges most of the time) before giving it up, to raise a family. Smart move(financially) as he did quite well in the textile business, before having a stroke, and winding up in a nursing home. I have done some research on his career, and even tracked down a picture of the field of the last stadium he played in looking straight down the first base line towards home plate(which was his view, as he played first base). The picture stirred a lot of memories in him. I included it in a little project I did, collecting baseball cards of guys he played with, and made it to the "Show". It hangs on his nursing home room wall to this day.
I was wondering if you would be interested in making a baseball card for him? 10 - 20 copies would be cool, to give to him, his kids, and grand kids. I have a good quality picture of him in uniform, from his first year 1952, with the Greenwood Dodgers, and his minor league career stats that I can email you. Obviously, I think based on a 1952-1959 card design(doesn't really matter which year), would be best.
I realize your busy, and I'm not asking for a freebie. If you could give it a little thought, and let me know what you think, at your convenience, that would be great. I have battled with myself over asking you, as I don't know you, and, I have no idea what is involved, in doing this. But finally settled on the realization that the worst that could happen is you tell me, that you can't do it, for whatever reason. Which would be completely understandable. Either way thanks for listening.
