It's been six months since Ralph Kiner passed away and I am still disappointed that I never made the trip to a Cooperstown signing that he so often attended. Kiner was one of the greatest sluggers of his time and during his 10 year career he hit 369 homeruns. After his playing career ended, Kiner went on to be an announcer for the New York Mets. Both the Mets and Pirates are wearing commemorative patches to honor Kiner this year. The above card was purchased for $15 back in January and is my 15th certified autograph of the Hall of Famer.
