Lou was scheduled to start signing around 1 in the afternoon but he showed up early and started right away. I had jumped back into line right after acquiring the Ken autograph and was about 10th in line but when Lou started there was a good 50+ behind me. Who knew Lou would draw them in? While I waited I chatted up with a few familiar faces from around the autograph hounding world and when I finally got up to the table I asked Lou if he would be so kind as to put a World Series inscription on the ball so it would match my Ken one that I just got no more than 20 minutes earlier. He said sure but this is how I am writing it now. I said ok....? and waited to see what he put on there. Once he handed me the ball back I took a look at it and it said 41-65. What? 41 was his number while he was on the team in 1965 but that is one odd way to inscribe a World Series Champion. Maybe in his older years it is easier for him to do that instead of writing it out for everyone but its still odd in my eyes. Nonetheless, it was a free autograph and I am not going to complain about it. Thank you once again to the Dodgers and Lou Johnson for coming out and meeting up with fans and doing an autograph session.
What is Lou writing?
41-65? Huh? Ok then
