A Tribute to Roy Carson ALPCA #17

Folks looked up to him with the highest regard,
Our good friend Mr. Carson was quite a card.
Roy always answered any questions with a smile
I wish I could have met the man and gazed at his pile.
You see him at all of the conventions and many of the shows
He loved his collection from his head down to his toes
A gentle grandfatherly figure he will remain on of the greats
Roy taught every collector about the hobby of trading plates
