As a student of the American Revolution when I hear Josiah Quincy my first response is the lawyer along with John Adams who defended the British soldiers involved with the Boston Massacre. He was Josiah Quincy II. You have his son Josiah Quincy III but that is still a huge letter for a collection.
Congratulations on the purchase.

Today's haul:
  • Sam McDowell, 2/2 c/o home, 19 days - $10 fee
  • Ed Kranepool, 2/2 c/o home, 11 days - $10 fee
  • Bill Landis, 2/2 c/o home, 8 days
  • Fay Vincent, 1/2 c/o home, 13 days
  • Dale Scott (umpire), 4/4 c/o home, 9 days
  • Dick LeBeau, 2/2 c/o home, 13 days
  • Bonnie Blair (speed skater), 5/2 c/o home, 13 days - added a signed photo and signed both index cards used for support
  • Non-success: Bobby Grich, returned card unsigned and check with a note that he is now requesting $30 per photo or card and $50 for baseballs, no thanks; Paul Warfield, who's taking extra safety precautions and not opening mail right now - good for him. Signed the letter though.
  • Purchased: Signed index card from Rose Gacioch, possibly the best AAGPBL player there was.

Some pretty ones today:
  • Dave Giusti, 3/3 c/o home, 13 days
  • Dave Morehead, 3/3 c/o home, 9 days - with "Impossible Dream" inscription
  • George Culver, 7/3 c/o home, 8 days - sent 4 of his own signed custom cards; however, added "Trump 2020" on the outside of the SASE, which felt a bit unnecessary (and certainly isn't changing my vote...)
  • Garry Roggenburk, 1/1 c/o home, 8 days
  • Dave Pallone (umpire), 6/3 c/o home, 11 days - signed both index cards used for support and sent a nice signed note
  • Ron Teasley (Negro Leagues), 4/4 c/o home, 10 days - kept $20 check, love how the Allen & Ginters came out
  • Norma Whitney (AAGPBL), 3/3 (1 TC, 2 IC) c/o home, 11 days
  • Betty Petryna (AAGPBL), 1/1 c/o home, 27 days
  • Richard Petty, 2/2 c/o business, 14 days
  • Non-success: Harold Baines returned my 3 cards and $12 check unsigned - guess I missed the window?
