I have saved hand-written return address “autographs” for years.
I was touched to think that a retiree is so concerned about my cards that he wants them back, in case my address on the SASE does not work. (Think Virgil Trucks!)
I note how faithful the oldest ex-players are. They sign their names, then add their full addresses.
Sure, five bucks is kind. However, someone age 80 may appreciate some adhesive labels.
Print out a sheet on your computer to include. Whether ordered or homemade, the labels don’t have to be baseball themed.
But it can’t hurt!
Or, if you know a collector needing a Father’s Day present (or the collector looking at you in the mirror), do the same. Show the world who you are.
