Item Received: 1989 ProCards Portland Beavers.  Signed in black Sharpie.

This is the first success in a pet-project of this autograph collection.  I noticed that, while lacking starpower, my 1989 Portland Beavers team set (the Twins AAA affiliate at the time) was littered with players who had cups of coffee in the majors, leading to guys who are reasonably within contact (addresses of career minor leaguers can be tough to track down).  Alan Cockrell was the Colorado Rockies hitting coach when they went to the World Series in 2007, and now holds that position for the Seattle Mariners.  Thanks for the quick return, Mr. Cockrell!
