R.I.P. Marty Marion

I recently got the news that former Cardinals shortstop Marty Marion passed away last night due to a heart attack. Marion was a great player for many years and won the 1944 NL MVP. The 8 time All Star was 93 years old, and lived a long and great life. He was an outstanding through the mail signer, and earlier this month I was fortunate enough to get his autograph through the mail on a custom and index card. He was a friend of the hobby and a gentleman to the game of baseball.

R.I.P. Mr. Marion, we'll miss you!
