Virgil Trucks

Item Sent: 1989 Pacific Legends
Item Received: 1989 Pacific Legends, plus his own custom card.  Both signed in blue Sharpie.  Added thank you note and an offer to buy his book.

A true gentleman of the game, Virgil "Fire" Trucks is probably best known for tossing two hitters in one season in 1952, including one against the mighty Yankees.  He not only signed the card I sent, but included his own custom signed card and sent a very generous note along with another piece of paper that had info for purchasing his book on one side and his career stats on the other.
