War with Walk-Swinging for the Fences

It's been hard to sit on this for a few days but it just seemed right to do so.  Mr. Scott aka the great one, aka Bob Walk, is not adverse to sending anything in this war-that's already been established.

He promised a weapon of mass destruction was heading my way...and he delivered.

Let me just show and then I'll talk
 It's a Basic Cert-No big deal
 It's legit
 FEAST-Feast your eyes on the spoil of war that came from Morgantown
 This one was a jaw dropper for me.
Needless to say it's my first Hammer Auto and what a nice Saturday afternoon surprise to come home too!!  Great Scott!  Dude-I'm still in awe.  And then there's today-Today in Baseball History

715

1974 on this date courtesy of Al Downing came the record breaker from the bat of the Hammer.

I didn't have the pleasure of watching the Hammer in real time but I grew up on superstation TBS.  I remember at an early age my dad telling me that he was the legend-the guy.

I also remember my dad being irritated when you know who took the record.  It didn't resonate as strongly with me at the time but as I get a little older I respect the Hammer for what he did in that time and how he did it-WITH CLASS.

This is the singular nicest thing that just showed up in my mailbox  EVER.  Many Cheers Great Scott.  Congratulations on this anniversary day to you Mr. Aaron.

Only 3 more chapters to go in the War Diary with BOB WALK.  They will not be easy to forget.

  2. I have the paperback version of that book, that I bought 23 years ago. I checked, but it's not a signed copy. This is a great, great gift ! I'll now sit back and continue enjoying the show

  3. This was my desperation hail mary. I had two unique items on my radar, but this one was by far my favorite. Glad it worked out and that you enjoyed it. The only bad thing about a book is displaying it.

  4. I read that book back when it came out -- it's an excellent read on top of having the autograph in it!
