Time: 6 Days
Item Sent: 1983 Fritsch Visalia Oaks
Item Received: 1983 Fritsch Visalia Oaks, signed in black ballpoint.
Like yesterday's Phil Franko return, Lee Belanger signed a card for my 1983 Visalia set in black ballpoint and wrote me a full thank you letter. He mentioned that his son played ball for the Mankato (Minnesota) Moondogs and when he visited him, he called Kent Hrbek to play a round of golf, and that his former minor league teammates Hrbek, Kirby Puckett, and Gary Gaetti would always take care of him and his sons whenever the Twins would visit Anaheim. He ended his letter, "I still + always will pull for the Twins!!" Unique and personal returns like this are what this hobby is all about. Thanks, Lee.
