My Mom's uncle was a scout for the Yanks and Braves. He sent us two autographed balls back around '60. Berra, Maris, Mickey, Boyer, Whitey Ford ....the whole team. My brother has it and never answers my calls. I guess that ship has sailed.

Also have a Milwaukee Braves ball with the team sigs, the main ones being Warren Spahn and Hank. I sure hope my brother kept those.

B&W TV days I saw a lot of the Yanks and Celts so those were the 1st too pro teams I became a fan of. Then the Texans/Cowboys showed up and i latched onto football, since i was a kid in Austin. We thought Darrel Royal was a god. We lived right by the stadium and were good at sneaking in through the vendors gate then slipping down onto the sidelines. I remember being there and watching those "huge" college guys banging into each other and it was very impressive for a 10 year kid 15 feet off the sideline.
