About two and half years ago i had the honor of meeting Clem Labine at Bud’s Sport card shop on Oakland Park Rd. Clem and Don Newcombe where signing there for a fee which i taught was a great price for both of these great icons. Well as most of you know Clem sadly passed away on March 2 2007 in Vero Beach, FL, one week after undergoing exploratory brain surgery following a bout with pneumonia. to this day I must say that Clem was one of the nicest baseball players i have ever met. He was a classy top notch guy and is missed thought out the baseball circle. Clem was a 2 x all star and a 3 time world champ with the Brooklyn Dodgers. Thanks Clem for all the great memories you gave us.
