Unpossible Autograph Friday- Walt Dropo, Oriole #144, Revisited

Walt passed away just before Christmas 2010, and I wrote about his passing at the time. Since then, I obtained another copy of his autograph, and also decided to focus on Orioles debuts, so I have a little bit more to say about him. 

Walt made his Orioles debut on June 24, 1959, and became the 144th player to appear in a game for the team.  He was a ten year MLB veteran by the time he arrived in Baltimore and played the last three seasons of his career for the O's.

RIP Walt.
