Doug Harvey -- Hall of Fame 2010
Turnaround: 18 days
Submittal: $15 cash, ROMLB, SASE
My Request: Sweet spot, blue pen, HOF & "god" inscriptions
Commentary: With the addition of this baseball, I have now completed the 2010 Hall of Fame induction class -- Andre Dawson, Whitey Herzog and now former umpire Doug Harvey. In my LOR, I requested the double inscriptions along with his autograph. Got all three. I'm happy about that because I have always thought that "god" was one of the best nicknames in the game. For context, Doug Harvey is the only living umpire in Cooperstown. The induction of an ump is rare, but he was that good -- hence the nickname.
