Hidden Treasures in Mississippi Part 3 - Trip to Japan and Autographs
One of the coolest things Mr. McNair showed me was in a briefcase he brought with him to dinner. Inside the briefcase was an album that was given to Eric McNair when he was a member of the 1934 barnstorming team that toured Japan right before World War II.
So, these posts have been the highlights of my meeting with Mr. Don McNair, son of former big leaguer Eric McNair. I met up with Mr. McNair's son Eric, III (grandson of Eric McNair) the next day for lunch. He is also a really nice guy who turned me toward something really cool while I was in Birmingham, AL, so look for a post on that coming soon!
