Anyways, on to the seventh autographed 1961 Fleer card I acquired:
It cost me $28.27 delivered. Lloyd Waner was born in Oklahoma a year before statehood in Harrah, a rural community on the east side of Oklahoma City and a 30-40 minute drive from where I live. In fact, our farrier lives in Harrah. Interestingly, one of Harrah’s rivals was Meeker High School, which is about 20 miles further away. The star player for that school was pitcher Carl Hubbell.
Lloyd, like his brother Paul, is in the Hall of Fame. Although, modern statistics don't really favor Lloyd. He has a career WAR of 24.1 and an OPS+ of 111. Clearly, a better than replacement level player, but not what modern observers would consider a lock for HOF admission. If you wish to read more about Lloyd, here is his SABR biography.
