Ed was my decade older cousin. I remember Cardinal talk with him at our Lopinot Cousins reunions. He had a trove of memories about those players & teams before Cardinal baseball replaced cartoons & Saturday morning Westerns as my entertainment interests. In fact, he got me started on my baseball card collection – “bequeathing” me a load of cards from his. . . . . Thanks, Eddie. Still have those cards.
