Item Received: 1986 ProCards Prince William Pirates, signed in black gel pen.
Larry Melton spent five years in the Pirates organization, reaching the AAA level before calling it a career. As with many former minor league players that I've written, Mr. Melton included a wonderful full-page letter with his reply. He is now a mortgage specialist in the Portland area, has a wife and two daughters, and stays involved in baseball by teaching private lessons in his spare time.
As a side note, I love these 1986 ProCards team sets. It was the first year I collected minor league cards, and it's such a simple, classic design. I'm definitely going to try collecting more, from all teams.
