    On small trades I use PWE but'll use a bubble mailer if you ask.

    I certainly remember Mel Stottlemyre as a kid. He was one of the bright spots on the Yankees as they were in decline after their glory years. He and Fritz Peterson were the aces of those late 60s/early 70s teams. I don't remember Gil Downs though. I'll have to look him up since that name des not ring a bell at all.

    Bob Kuchenberg, a starting guard for the 1970s Dolphins passed away this week too. He was a starter on the undefeated 1972 team and made the pro bowl on several occasions.

    Downs lived locally, so his obit was in the Albany paper.
    I remember Kuchenberg. Wasn't he paired with Larry Little on their great offensive line?

    Yep he was on that famous O-line with HOFers Larry Little and Jim Langer. There was a push a few years ago to put him in the HOF also but he fell short.

    I just read the obit for Gil Downs and he was a 1st Round pick for the Yankees in 1960. Pretty impressive accomplishment!

    He was a great TTM signer, and signed for me a couple of time. Nice signature.
