In the Mailbox

Today’s mail included a pair of autographs from early 1960s Mets. I already wrote about Ken MacKenzie last week, so I’ll just post a scan of the now-signed 1963 Topps card. He’s got a nice signature. That’s one thing I love about getting autographs from older ballplayers — you can almost always read them. 😀

My other card came courtesy of former infielder Bobby Klaus, who played for the Mets in 1964 and 1965.

Quoting from the back of his 1978 TCMA “The 1960’s” card:

After five season [sic] in the minors, Klaus made it to the bigs in 1964 with the Cincinnati Reds.  A versatile infielder, he was sold to the New York Mets on 7/29/64 and finished his career there in ’65. In his two major-leauge seasons, Klaus batted .208 with six homers and 29 RBI. The younger brother of longtime major-league infielder Billy Klaus, Bobby batted .225 in ’64 and .191 in ’65.

TCMA used a great photo of Klaus from 1964, prominently showing the World’s Fair uniform patch. He also has a nice, easily readable signature.


Hufflepuff. Level 43 entertainment junkie and Mets fan. Always try to be nice, but never fail to be kind.
