Garver, Dropo. Sisti and Lown

The featured cards include #112 Ned Garver, #121 Walt Dropo. #124 Sibby Sisti and #130 Turk Lown.  Garver and Lown I both acquired TTM for free.  Lown usually charges a $20 fee, but my card got so beat up in the mail that I guess he took pity on me and returned the money.  I keep meaning to send him a thank you note for that, and for his service in World War II.  That back of his card notes that he was wounded in the Battle of the Bulge.  I found an article here by Woody Paige about Lown, and when Paige asked about Lown's service, Lown shut him down.  That battle was 70 years ago this month,
