Redding -- I had dragged my feet getting you that program for so long. My wife always calls me a procrastinator. I wanted to give that program to you because you talked so fondly about Mulgado and I knew it would mean more to you having seen him play.
The story behind his autograph is I was working and had a ASU intertwined AS ballcap on when these two contractors came to do my workload about six years ago. They both laughed at my hat and when I asked them what was so funny they told me a older man with the same maroon hat wore that @ their local Eagles or VFW club in a Pittsburgh, PA suburb. They said that he told them that he played football there but they did not believe him. When I asked them him his name they said Bobby Mulgado. I said you have got to be kidding me. The next day I brought that game program to work and asked them to get it autographed on the cover for me. They said Mulgado opened it up to the page with his picture and signed it there with a big smile. They said it made his day.
Redding that program and those 1975 Fiesta Bowl photos are officially yours forever. I have been fortunate enough to either come across and meet a handful of special fellow Sun Devil fans over the years at ASU games, or with you and another poster who I have not met but have enjoyed posting with and wanted to send them a couple momentos that I knew they would appreciate. I enjoy reading your posts and I have so many trinkets in my collection that I knew you would covet Mulgado even more than me so I am glad it is special to you. Take care my friend & if you ever do come back to Ohio and have spare time let me know & I will meet you and dinner will be on me. Go Devils !!!!!
