Unpossible Autograph Friday- Ted Gray

Sadly, the Orioles family recently lost another former player, when Ted Gray passed away on June 15. He was 86 years old.

Ted signed my TTM request and I wrote a post about this card last September. And I've said this before and I'll say it again, anytime a former Oriole player passes away who took a minute of their time to sign and personalize a card for me specifically, their passing always seems to hit me a little harder. I didn't know Ted at all, but I know that he was a decent guy who always had time for his fans, even 50+ years after his playing career ended.

RIP Ted.
