    He was a patron of my kid's elementary school and used to hang out there all the time, just giving the kids good life advice. Super friendly to everyone. Amazing guy. RIP.

    Absolutely loved watching the guy. Just seemed like the coolest guy in the NLB during the 70s. Total badass legend.

    A little over two weeks ago I wrote him for a signature as I've been sending off rookie cards to get signed. I had also sent out some index cards with lyrics of a song titled "Vida Blue" by the band ALL. I had typed out the chorus for him to sign under: "Burn my world a southpaw curve, fast and hard like..." I was so excited for this return though it seems very unlikely.

    I guess there is a slight chance he signed them before he passed as he seemed to get items back within a few weeks. He was just at the A's 1973 WS reunion too.

    RIP VIDA BLUE
