Any chance of buying this card from you? Bud is my Dad’s cousin and it would mean a lot to my Dad to have this card.

Let me take a look when I get home tonight. We kicked off our last homestand of the year tonight so it might be a couple of days before i can finish digging through my CR alumni cards. If its one I have multiples of I would be glad to mail it to you free of charge. I know I have several Daley cards but if you are looking for the ’62 Topps one in particular, I just need to check my cards.

Hi again. Just came across your reply after all this time. Thanks for the consideration. Did you ever have my luck with this? If so, would you mind emailing me at daleydf@gmail.com? Any Bud Daley card would be treasured! Thank you!
