I sent Don Taussig a 1962 Topps on 5/22/09 and received it back today. The last '62 I sent off (Aspromonte) came back damaged, so this time I took no chances and slipped it inside a plastic protector.
Don started out in the majors with the New York Giants in '58. He was later drafted by the Colts but didn't play too long for them due to a knee injury. He ended his career in Houston and went into business for himself soon after.
Last year he wrote his first book, " Baseball: The Balanced Hand Method of Hitting". I found an article from this past January about the book and it featured a photo. I always like to see current pictures of former players; it looks like Don is doing well these days.
