Does this date mean anything to you?   https://sports.ha.com/itm/baseball/1961-mickey-mantle-45th-home-run-baseball-caught-by-senators-shortstop-coot-veal/a/7190-81506.s?ic4=GalleryView-ShortDescription-071515#

also check out the next 2 lots in the auction #81507 and #81508.

Unfortunately, Coot messed up the dates so it was really when you were 1 day old!    The Nolan Ryan lot IS the correct date............     RR

Hey Don just making sure you didnt miss this post.......  RR

I saw it! (I didn't see this one though.) :mellow:

On a related note, the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd-place vote-getters for the AL MVP in 1960 were Roger Maris (who also won it in 1961), Mickey Mantle, and ... Brooks Robinson. I did not realize that Brooks was being called "Mr. Impossible" as early as 1960 - do you know about his "hook injury" in 1959? Considering his two knee injuries in the late 1950s, and this grisly event in Vancouver, it's not surprising that he bounced around in the minors for four years.
