Retired Dodger Signs for Topps–In His Bar

Billy Harris was more than happy to spend last Friday signing cards for the 2009 Topps Heritage set. But if you get one that smells like hops, well…we know the answer.

He didn’t spend a lot of time in the big leagues, but Billy Harris made it.

A pitcher for the Dodgers from 1951-1960, Harris was lucky enough to get his own baseball card–and now he’s back in the limelight again.

He’s one of the players who agreed to sign autographs for the upcoming Topps Heritage line. It turned into a little party at the tavern he owns in Kennewick, Washington, with a part-time Topps rep there to make sure it was all done correctly.

Harris was glad to pick up a few bucks–and share his thoughts with the local paper.
