April 18, 1951
One of the first baseball autographs I ever received was from Doug Flynn. In the 1980s, Flynn headed up the anti-drug program in Kentucky and was included in a trading card set made for the program. In addition to a “Champions Against Drugs” card (which unfortunately showed Flynn as a Met instead of a Red), he also signed his 1984 Topps card for me. He is currently a broadcaster for the Reds.
Should-be Hall of Famer Dave Parker will be appearing at the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame tonight signing autographs for visitors of the museum. The autograph is free, but you do have to pay to get in the door. But trust me, the admission price is worth it! Parker is scheduled to sign from 5:30-7:00 p.m.; limit one autograph per person.
Another former Reds player, Doug Flynn, will be at the museum on Sunday, September 23, to sign autographs for fans. On Tuesday, September 25, Spink Award winner Hal McCoy is scheduled for an autograph session.
