Default Sadly a Good Net54 Friend Has Passed Away - RIP Jantz Morey aka Jantz

Sadly Jantz Morey has passed away. I don't have any details but was given a message from an anonymous person through the board. Jantz always seemed upbeat on the board. RIP friend.

So sad, he always seemed to be a really good guy. He was quite young. My family will pray for him and his family.

Collecting PCL, Southern Association, and type cards.

Met him once at a National. I'm a shy/quiet person, but he saw the net54 pin I had on and struck up a conversation and seemed very nice and humble and easy to talk to. Also seemed like a very happy person.
Only 51 yrs old. Sad. RIP Jantz.

Wow. We are losing too many members lately. Jantz was a great guy, May he Rest In Peace.

Not sure if it was posted here or not but we also lost Gil Maines last week.

I'm so sad to hear that Jantz passed away. I sat next to him at the Net54 dinner at the last Nationals that were held in Cleveland. He was very friendly and asked if I bought anything at the show. I sheepishly showed him a low grade Cy Young T206 that I had purchased that afternoon and expressed concerns that I had overpaid. He immediately replied, "Joe, I would be proud to have that card in my collection." His affirmation made me feel like a million bucks.

I have always appreciated his comments on the board, and he always responded in his posts with knowledge and kindness--a rare combination.

He will be in my prayers. God bless him and his family.

Unreal...way too young.

I only dealt with him once but it was such an enjoyable transaction, on some signed baseballs that he won in a charity auction on my behalf.
I wish I had followed up more on our newfound kinship, as he had a certain coolness to him that I envy.

RIP from a Net54 bro.

I didn't know Jantz or Maines other than from this board. Sad news. I know they were vintage card experts. Sad day.
