LOU BROCK On behalf of his Brockworld company, he signs a typed 1990 letter to a business associate, suggesting use of a new color copier. Typed Letter signed: "Lou Brock", 2 pages, 11x8½. St Louis, Missouri, 1990 December 12. On letterhead of Brockworld Products, Inc. to Steve McKelvey, Major League Baseball Properties, New York, N.Y. In full: "During my research and development of 'MY FAVORITE SUPERSTAR AND ME' marketing program, I have discovered that Fuji Film has the technology and equipment available which would allow this program to become cost-effective at a popular market price. The equipment is called a Fuji Colorcopier AP5000. This program has been presented to Mr. Ross Marvin of the Coca Cola Company for their evaluation. In addition, I have met and presented this program to Kathy Francis for the Kellogg Company review. In the past, the biggest hangup of the 'MY FAVORITE SUPERSTAR AND ME MERCHANDISE PROGRAM' was the inability of the available technology to reproduce a color glossy photo from a color print of another color glossy print in just one step. To our surprise we discovered that Fuji Film has developed a color photocopier that acts as a color photo lab which has the ability to reproduce and enlarge color glossy photo or a color transparency in just one step. Steve, I need your help with Fuji Film to explore and test market the final piece of the puzzle required to mass produce the 'MY FAVORITE SUPERSTAR AND ME' merchandise at a popular market price. In fact, within the guideline of Brockworld/Velva Sheen Apparel License, I believe we have the rights to put Fuji's name in the byline on the front of each product produced. Thanks in advance for your assistance in this matter. Incidentally, I will be in your office both Monday and Tuesday during the week of December 17, 1990. I would like to make an appointment to discuss this issue. Please advise. Outfielder Lou Brock spent 20 years in the Majors, the last 16 with the St Louis Cardinals. (The transaction that sent him from the Chicago Cubs to the arch-rival Cardinals in 1964 makes most lists of all-time one-sided trades.) A 7-time All-Star, Brock was baseball's all-time leader in stolen bases until 1982, with 938. (He remains the all-time National League leader.) He set a major league record by stealing over 50 bases 12 times and a N.L. record with 118 steals in 1974. Brock led the N.L. in stolen bases 8 times. He collected 3,023 hits during his 19-year career and holds the World Series record with a .391 batting average in 21 post-season games for the Cardinals. Brock entered the Hall of Fame in 1985. 2 horizontal creases on page 1 and 2. Otherwise fine condition. Previously authenticated by JSA.
