World War II veteran Burke Waldron created a national buzz last season when the 92-year-old fan jogged out to the mound at Safeco Field and delivered a pretty strong ceremonial first pitch before a Seattle Mariners game.
National media outlets were loving the sharp-as-a-tack lefty, who looked like he could still serve his country– or get a key out in the 8th inning.
Last fall, he even got his own Topps baseball card as part of the First Pitch series.
Some enterprising collectors tracked down his address and sent him his cards, asking for autographs. Mr. Waldron was happy to oblige but his daughter Gayle tells Sports Collectors Daily he moved in with her family in Utah last year and the post office won’t be able to forward mail much longer.
So…if you’d love to add Burke’s autograph to your collection, here’s where to send it (gotta love that street address):
4104 S. Signature Way
Washington, UT 84780
Don’t forget to include a self-addressed, stamped envelope.
If you need a card to have him sign, here you go.
