Friends, first of all thank you for all of the support over the years. It means a lot and helps us preserve the stories of all the players we’ve featured on this site. I am excited to report that yesterday we published our 589th player feature (Mike Stenhouse). That means we’re just 11 players away from 600! In order to help us reach this milestone, I figured I’d do some fundraising. We still have a little swag left over in the form of t-shirts and hats and we continue to get the random LFHP business card autographed by players we wrote to. So, here is what I’m prepared to offer in way of rewards.
Every person who donates $5 will get one LFHP card autographed by a random player. If you have a favorite team, let me know and I will try to send you one from a player who played for that team, but no guarantees. I have a lot of them, but I’m not sure I have one for every team in MLB. Here’s a look at a few we still have. I believe they are Jerry Turner, Ken Forsch and Glenn Hoffman.
For every $5 you donate, you’ll get another business card.
Second level is the LFHP t-shirt. Donate $25 or more and I’ll send you a shirt. (Was going to do $20, but have to cover cost of shipping.) We don’t have a lot of these left, but we’ve got enough to cover basically any size from S-XXXL.
Sorry they are wrinkled, but I’m not really an ironer. (Is that a word? Should be.)
Donate $30 and we’ll send you a hat. Only four of these left. (Again, had to go a little higher to cover shipping. These are New Era snap backs.
Finally, if you can chip in $50 or more, I’ll send you a hat, a shirt, some autographed cards and an LFHP sticker!
As always, this money will be put right back into the site to purchase supplies (stamps, envelopes, cards, etc.), pay our web site fees and, if we raise enough money, used to promote the site on social media.
Guess that’s it. Thanks so much for reading! It’s a lot of fun working on this and I love to hear from everyone who loves baseball’s history as much as I do.
