Bill Virdon - Diamond Signatures

John, over at Boxes of Cards, sent me this signed Bill Virdon card for winning a contest.

These unnumbered cards were produced for the Philadelphia Athletics Historical Society. Ernie Montella was kind enough to answer a few questions about the set. Ernie also said that the Society will be producing a second series of cards that is due out this summer. I have assembled this alphabetical checklist from their website.
