Autographed Monte Irvin Hall of Fame postcard from my collection

Hall of Famer Monte Irvin passed away yesterday at the age of 96.

Before the way was opened for Irvin to play Major League Baseball, he was a Newark Eagle. columnist Jerry Izenberg reflects on that part of Irvin’s baseball career, while the Associated Press offers up a more general obituary.
