BELOVED CLOWNRight after I read Steve Wulf's wonderful profile of Max Patkin (Max, June 6), Max performed at Holman Stadium, home of the Class A Vero Beach Dodgers. That was the first time I ever saw him. When he had finished his act, Max walked through the stands. I offered my hand and a "Great show, Max." He shook my hand and said thanks with a broad, genuine smile.CRAIG COLGAN Vero Beach, Fla.

PATKIN'S CARD
What's wrong with the baseball card people? After reading Steve Wulf's article, Max, I checked for a Max Patkin card, but it does not seem to exist. If this oversight is not corrected, it will be another tragedy in the life of a clown.

?Last year, in recognition of the Clown Prince of Baseball's contributions to the game, ProCards created a Patkin card (see below). Some 45,000 of them were printed, and all were given to Patkin, who likes to sign them and hand them out to the kids at the ballparks.—ED.
