    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

    Mr. Lowenstein,
    I was given a baseball signed by the 1983 world series champions, Baltimore Orioles. Which you personally gave to Robert Steele. My family and I are doing research for family and friends. I'm assuming you played high school ball with Bob and we're friends with he and his brother, George. We would like any information you could provide about, George, Bob, Sharon Wells and Rhea Wells (now George's wife) it would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Peter
