Treasures From Mom’s House

I Made a trip to my mom’s house last night and while we were talking, the subject of my old toys came up. I have a small amount of stuff still at her house. I’m in my 30s now, so I had gotten most of my childhood items cleared out of mom’s house a while ago. But, among the items I re-discovered on Saturday were my old Little League hats. I played four years of Little League, and all of my hats were present except for the first hat. But the most interesting is the powder blue one, which I wore as a member of the Phillies.

That was my second-year hat and the coach nicknamed me “Flash.” Not sure why, but at the time I was thrilled because prospect Tom Gordon was also named Flash.

While that is mildly of interest to you, check out the sweet autograph that’s on the inside of the bill – Hall of Famer Orlando Cepeda.

I remember acquiring this autograph at a free signing at a Pizza Hut! You just don’t see that anymore.
