Great story, Dale is from my wife's hometown of Highland/Alpine, Utah and nobody she has ever come into contact with EVER had a bad word to say.

My only complaint, how'd you like to be the guy who bought your wife a Lexus for Christmas and still got shown up! Way to go on that one Dale!!!!!!

Great story and a great guy. However, that's not a rookie card (as stated in the article) she is holding up in the photo
