I briefly met Duke at an MAB show May 20, 2007. It was a Mets show and Duke was there signing autographs.
The picture here is Duke signing a nice Dodgers jersey. The jersey belonged to the person immediately in front of me in line. Duke's autograph four years ago wasn't the best and he didn't say much to people in line. He signed a baseball for me with the HOF '80 inscription. He looked at me, said thank you and that was plenty for me.
I'm not a Dodgers fan, but you don't have to be on to appreciate Duke Snider. RIP.
