This weekend I happened to come across several old autographed baseballs my Dad had given me years before. I knew two of the three balls were signed by the Minnesota Twins (‘68 & ‘71).
Island Hopper, I am curious what autographs you have on those baseballs. I grew up in Minnesota from age 12 to age 29 (1965 to 1983) and was a huge Twins fan in the late 60's and 70's.
Per your request, here are the signatures on the baseballs.
1968 Minnesota Twins signatures include:
Bob Miller, Jim Roland, Frank Kostro, Jim Merritt, Bruce Look, Tom Hall, Jim Holt, Harmon Killebrew, Rod Carew, Dave Boswell, Rich Rollins, Jim Perry, Rich Renick, Bob Allison, Dean Chance, Al Worthington, Cesar Tovar, Rich Reese, Tony Oliva, Jerry Zimmerman, Jim Katt, Ron Keller, Ted Uhlaender. There are a few other signatures, but I can't make them out. They may be part of the coaching staff, but I'm not sure.
1971 Minnestota Twins signatures include:
Steve Luebber, Rick Renick, Bob Gebhard, Jim Perry, Tom Tischinski, Phil Roof, Jim Holt, Harmon Killebrew, Rich Reese, Jim Nettles, Tony Oliva, George Thomas, Tom Hall, George Mitterwald, Jim Katt, Danny Thompson, Hal Haydel, Bert Blyleven, Stan Williams, Brant Alyea, Steve Braun, Cesar Tovar, and others that I cannot make out.
The signatures from the 1952 Washington Senators include:
Mickey Vernon, Ed Yost, Ken Wood, Gil Coan, Pete Runnels, Tom Ferrick, Joe Haynes, Sandy Consuegra, Frank Campos, Julio Moreno, Randy Gumpert, Mel Hoderiein, Spec Shea, Mickey Grasso, Don Johnson, as well as others.
Hope this helps Steve.
