After getting Leon Everitt's signature through the autograph dealer I found an address for Van Kelly, another 1969 Padre without a card. I found a picture of him and made this custom card of him. The back was fun to make also, baseball reference and wikipedia were essential to the information on the back. I sent the cards to him and asked him to sign the card for me. I asked him to sign 5 and keep about 20 I made. The cards made it there and back within a week and in the return mail also came the following note.
