Autograph request through the mail received: Floyd Bannister

Floyd Bannister c/o home - signed my three cards in blue Sharpie in about a week.

Bannister's 'bread and butter' years were before the time I started seriously watching baseball and his stint with the California Angels in 1991 seemed forgettable at best - however, despite a 134-143 overall W-L record in the Major Leagues, he was a solid starting pitcher through the mid 1980s and pitched in 200 or more innings in 1980, 1982, 1983, 1984, 1985 and 1987.

Random and perhaps silly question - how does one find addresses for former and/or current players?

I was a fan of Mr. Bannister, for example, and I would like to send him a card as well.

Thanks for any help.

I use sportscollectors.net an address database for about $18 a year. They also show success rates and a ton of other good information about the player and his signing habits.
