Sad news from my group of baseball card traders (OldBaseball.com), as we learned that long-time member Ryan Diselrath recently passed away. Fellow blogger Chris Stufflestreet wrote a nice post for Ryan at Vintage Sportscards, featuring these classic 1952 Topps.
Ryan and I swapped cards a few times over the years and our trading group kept track of his life and health via Facebook and chats after a seizure paralyzed most of his body. Despite how much that changes everything about day-to-day life, we never saw it dampen his enthusiasm for living. It was great to know Ryan and share his love for baseball.
