My numbering is out of whack and I need to check it out.
George Stablein, this replaces his 81 Rookie card he shares with Craig Stimac and Tom Tellman.
Lowell Palmer, I found this color picture and made another 74 of Palmer with the Padres.
Jack Bloomfield and Phil Roof were coaches with the Padres.
I have looked for a Sandy Sr. card for my collection.
I now have somewhere north of 930 different signatures.
