  1. To Mr. John Lowenstein;

    I was just sending you an email to see if you still sign your sports cards by any chance I have just a few which are not in the best of shape since being handled a lot and shown to others. If you still do sign your cards could you please email me back to let me know where to send them?

    Thanks again for your time and reply
