One former Negro Leagues player got the star treatment this week, autographing cards to be inserted into an unnamed set later this year.
Former pitcher Ted Toles is one of four players set to get their own card in an upcoming Topps issue. A local reporter stopped by during the signing session at Toles’ home in Ohio this week.
‘‘I never made any money in baseball, but it’s nice to do these things,’’ Toles said. ‘‘I enjoy it all.’’
Why can’t all players be like this?
