Today we got the sad news that Pittsburgh Pirates Hall of Famer Ralph Kiner has passed away.
2013 Phungo #4 Ralph Kiner
This is a card I didn't get around to posting until now. This pix was taken almost two years ago, Kiner was in his late 80s at the time. Despite being in what appeared to be pretty frail condition, Kiner took great care in every autograph he signed. It was really special to see a player of his magnitude be so great with the fans.
