Sad day for Giants fans.....Monte Irvin passes away at the age of 96
RIP Monte, you will be remember as one of my all time favorites

This is what his very close friend, Willie Mays had to say:

"Today is a sad, sad day for me. I lost someone I cared about and admired very, very much; someone who was like a second father to me. Monte was a kind of guy that you had to be around to get to know. But once you became friends, he always had your back. You had a friend for life. Monte Irvin was a great left fielder. Monte Irvin was a great man. I will miss him. There are no words for how I feel today. I could say so much more about Monte, but this is not so easy to do right now."

Indeed a sad day for more than just Giants fans.

I collect Hall of Fame baseball player cards and cards of current and retired superstars.
