Featured autograph - Bob Bolin

The former MLB pitcher from the 1960s and 1970s signed my card in black ink - like my recent featured autographs, this was a TTM request I sent early in the year and got back as part of the mail that piled up when I wasn't home for 5 months.

"Post office sent this back to us. Hope everything OK."

This was sort of an odd success where my self-addressed stamped envelope was returned to Bolin even though I only use my address on the 'from' part of my SASE - someone must have put their address over mine instead of my mail being sent to me outright with postage due [if that was the problem in the first place].

For what it's worth, my SASE was re-sent in its own envelope, postage paid as well - I appreciate that gesture from the 81-year old and presumably whoever helps him sort through his mail.

Nice return, especially since he wrote on the envelope.

Only card I have ever seen with a helicopter in the background.

I wanted to believe it was a UFO at first.
