I am so sad!  Baseball Hall of Famer Gary Carter died today following complications from a brain tumor.  I’ve met Gary Carter so many times and he was always a nice guy in my experiences.  Because he was in a position to help others, he decided during his playing career that he would only autograph baseball cards post-1985 (it could have been post 1984) for a $25 donation to leukemia research.  Though that decision cost me hundreds of dollars in the 1990s, I gladly paid it.  RIP Gary!
