I saw that last night. He was one of my childhood heroes.

One of mine too. I had a stack of baseball cards I collected in the sixties and seventies. I had Roger Maris, Whitey Ford, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, and a bunch of others. Now I have no idea what happened to them. I was 7 years old when I got Roger Maris out of bubble gum.

Like you, I too had a good deal of baseball cards when I was a kid, but I didn’t have the mindset to know that many of them would be worth a good deal of money and I didn’t have the discipline to maintain them through the years.

My grandson has Pokémon cards that he collects and I’m trying to put it in his head to maintain them and keep them safe because they will fetch a good deal of money in later years. Well see.

In the 60’s I had boxes of baseball cards, team yearbooks and some player action figures like Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Mickey Mantle, Eddie Matthews , Bob Gibson. I remember going to St. Louis to see the San Francisco Giants with Mays and McCovey play the Cardinals. I wish I had held on to that stuff.

If we could only go back in time and make a few changes. Right?

Another baseball great passed away, Hall of Famer Orlando Cepeda, the Baby Bull he was 86. He played for the San Francisco Giants, St. Louis Cardinals, Atlanta Braves. He was a seven time all star and National League MVP in 1967 when the Cardinals won the World Series. Needless to say, he was one of my favorite players.

Actress Shelley Duvall, known for her work with director Robert Altman and her role in “The Shining,” has died at 75.
I liked her as Olive Oyl in Popeye.
