|I found a great 2011 newspaper article
about one of baseball’s unsung heroes.
Forget Clint Eastwood. I want the real thing.
I’m pleased with any new baseball movie. With this one, I hoped, “Will this push Topps to honor at least one scout in a future retro card set?”
When will card shows wake up? Tom Greenwade died 25 years ago. People were shelling out for Mickey Mantle autographs. Does anyone have a signed baseball from the man who discovered The Mick? I would have attended.
Sure, some former players became scouts. However, their autograph gets collected anyway, just for appearing in a card set.
Is there a whole legion of baseball scout autograph collectors that I don’t know about?
