TTM Success - Irv Noren
Irv Noren (b. 1924) played in the majors from 1950 to 1960 for the Senators, Yankees, A's (Kansas City), Cardinals, Cubs and Dodgers. In his 11-season career, he had 857 hits, 65 home runs and a career average of .275. He was an All Star for the American League in 1954 and finished as high as 15th in the MVP voting, twice. Noren played in three World Series with the Yankees, winning two of them (1952 and 1953).
Noren is also the first player among my card TTM successes who responded to the note I put inside my envelope. His response was a general one regarding the game today and the memories he cherished from his playing days and are as follows:
Players and money different today. Unions and agents are ruining the game today. First Maj. Lg. game and 1st W. Series great memories.
I mailed to Noren on March 25 and got the autograph back on April 1 for a 7-day TAT.
