Default Looking for a card of George Owen III

Hey Ya'll
I am trying to help someone that emailed me and it sounds like a good cause, was a very polite email, so why not?
.
.

I am looking for information and a baseball card for George Owen III.

George played in the minors from 1950-1953. (1950 & 52 California State
League (Ventura Braves) - I am looking for this card in this 1952 team set (G.O.
Card #8), Appalachian League, 1951 Quebec (Canada), Big State League). I
know that he was in the 1953 Gulf Coast League playing for Laredo, then
Brownsville (not sure if it was mid-season or not?)

Anyway as I said, I am on the look out for a baseball card, team photo or
news clipping from any of those teams/clubs during that time period. Can
you let me know IF there were any made? I am not sure what archival info.
you have there and if there was any type of card(s), then I would
like to purchase about 5 of them BUT OBVIOUSLY will settle for one!

In the case, that you don't have any, then perhaps, you might provide a
another store or perhaps another private individual, who deals directly
with Vintage Minor league cards?

The reason being, George had his 86th B-day last month and he has been a
great friend of the family since 1966.

I would like to provide him and his family (yes, and myself) with this gift.

Thanks for any help that you may be able to give.

Yours Sincerely,

William
