Tommy Brown Return

Today brought one 1949 Bowman return; #178 Tommy Brown, a former Brooklyn Dodgers outfielder.  Brown came up in 1945, and holds the record for youngest player to hit a home run in an MLB game.  He hung around for a few years with Brooklyn, the Phillies and the Cubs before retiring in 1953.  I sent this out on May 9th, so that makes a 10 day return.  He also enclosed a window decal for the National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund.
  This is the 12th signed 1949 Bowman I have.  After turning the cyberworld upside down, I managed to find #211 Dave Ferriss at a price that was not outrageous, and sent that out to him a few days ago.
