This has to be my favorite in a great day of seven successful returns.  I loved Kent Tekulve.  I still do.  He had it all.  The flat-top Pirates cap.  The "dickhead" sunglasses.  The funky sidearm delivery.  His nickname was "Bones" because with his 6'4" 175-pound frame whipping around, that's all the batter would see.  One of my favorite t-shirts is this kickass Tekulve shirt by Watch Your Back NYC.  These are some truly cherished autographs.  Thanks, Mr. Tekulve!
