Merv and Carlos

Mervin Weldon Rettenmund is the proud owner of three World Series ring, two as a player and one as a coach. He got one in 1970 with the Orioles, one in 1975 with the Reds and one, as a coach with the A's in 1989.  He played with the Padres in 1976 and 1977, and served as their hitting coach from 1991-1999 and then again in parts of 2006 & 2007.  I got this 1978 Topps card signed through the mail.   Carlos Alberto Reyes was liked by someone in baseball operations in San Diego.  He was signed three times as a free agent by the Padres.  He pitched for the Padres in 1998, 1999 and 2000 with stops in Boston and Phillies in between each of those stints in San Diego. I got this Keebler team issue card signed through the mail.
