    I had a chance to meet him at a minor league park signing event and was able to get a bunch of stuff signed, which was cool. Having the opportunity to sit there and talk baseball though, wow!

    I would have figured he collected old tins of mustache wax.

    Unless otherwise specified my posts represent only my opinion, not fact.

    I was at a signing and he didn’t want to take pictures with the kids. I guess he wanted his signings per hour to increase, so his pay rate went up. Not too friendly and was disappointed.

    Didn't Rollie sell garbage repack boxes a few years back?

    Just fantastic. I went to my first Dodgers game when I was 7 in 1979 and they were playing the padres. Started getting packs the next year and of course with that mustache Fingers was immediately recognizable and iconic. Thank you for sharing.

    If it wasn't him selling, he was a spokesman for sure and his likeness was on the boxes. I bought one cheap and pulled a really cheap looking redemption for an autographed item, but the redemption period had lapsed. Still a cool item for me.

    I also have a unique chromium card of his that is signed. Might be from this issue. I bought it because I had never seen one before.

    Cool video.

    Do have an auto card of him.

    I picked this up for a buck 99 few years ago. Just wanted the holder.

    Not sure what the company was supposed to be?

    Looks like he was trying to dabble in hobby related investment opportunities.
