I have 38 out of 40 members of the 1972 roster signed. I have a cut signature of Curt Blefary, so I need to make a card of him. I made the custom of Joe Goddard but I have tried a couple of ways to get it signed but no luck. He played 12 games in the majors in 1972 after being drafted in 1971. He played in the Padres system through 1976. He is currently a volunteer assistant coach at West Virginia Institute of Technology.
