I also remember Charlie Gehringer and Ted Williams as two of my more prized autographs.
It really was a fun hobby. Nothing like running home from school to check the mail and seeing if there was a SASE in the mail from a baseball player.
That was always really cool. I can still remember the excitement of tearing it open to see who responded. I will definitely encourage my kids to do this assuming I have kids and they like baseball.
