|Miles was intent on
keeping Negro Leagues
Thank you, Nick Diunte!
He’s a great fan, collector, historian and writer. His www.BaseballHappenings.Net site is informative fun.
Look at the tribute page he’s created to honor recently-deceased Negro Leaguer John “Mule” Miles. Anyone with a story about a surprising response from the man in the 2007 Allen & Ginter set — please add your memories.
Miles never stopped sharing with fans. Before Topps recognized his worth, “Mule” was unknown to many collectors.
More than one hobbyist got a note from the celebrated Negro Leaguer saying that HE looked forward to what the mailman would bring each day.
Just like us.
