1963 Fleer Autograph Project - Part 61

Jumping ahead to the new additions to my autographed 1963 Fleer set, ere is the 61st signed card:

I ended up snagging this one for $43, which I think was a good deal. Power (nee Pellot) lived out his retirement in his native Puerto Rico, where he passed away in 2005.  He had a 12 year MLB career, between 1954 and 1965, playing with 5 teams (Philadelphia/KC Athletics, Cleveland, Minnesota, California Angels, and the Philadelphia Phillies.) He was considered a solid first baseman, winning 7 consecutive Golden Gloves and pioneering the one handed fielding style that is common today, but considered flashy at the time.

Coming tomorrow: the second, and best, of the new additions.

What I am listening to:  We're a Happy Family by the Ramones (note the shirt at 1:10)
