Spot the Sig-3rd Inning-Roundup

I don't know why I cropped this the way I did.  It is a sportscaster card of Ali, the Greatest of All Time.  I sent this to him and is actually signed three times.  It is signed on the border above his head and on the back.  He also returned the letter I sent him with a signature on it also.  One through the mail request resulted in four signatures.  I also have a older signature of his that is more legible that he signed on a placemat from an old restaurant.  He has been a hero of mine since the late 60's, somewhere in all my stuff I have a scrapbook that I made in the 60's and 70's.  I was moved when he lit the torch at the 1996 Olympics and will be grieving when he leaves this world for the hereafter. 
Adam E from Thoughts and Sox got the autograph and so we now have three players with men on second. And a new player with a man on third from completely answering the brothers question.  Answering the question more completely than the Padres.  The Padres website list 6 sets of brothers, but Ryan came up with seven, one that I didn't know were brothers.  Wil and Melvin Nieves, and today the Padres made it 8 sets of brothers by signing Jerry Hairston, Jr. and trading with Oakland to get Scott Hairston back.
