Watt (b. 1941) played in the majors from 1966 to 1975 for the Orioles, Phillies and Cubs. He had a career record of 38-36 with 462 strike outs, a 2.91 ERA and 80 saves. He was part of the 1966 World Series Champion Orioles, but did not appear in that World Series. He did appear in the 1970 World Series for the O's where he went 0-1 with a 9.00 ERA. They won in spite of that appearance.
I mailed to Watt on February 27 (while I was watching the Oscars) and got the cards back on March 7, for an 8-day TAT.

So, here is a TTM success from Joe Cunningham on some nice vintage. The above 1960 Topps turned out really nice, I think.
Cunningham (b. 1931) played in the majors from 1954 and 1956-1966 for the Cardinals, White Sox and Senators. He had 980 hits, 64 home runs and a .291 batting average. He was an All Star in 1959 for the Cardinals, a season where he batted .345 and finished 13th in the NL MVP voting.
I mailed to Cunningham on November 21 and got the cards back on March 7, for a 106-day TAT.
I am slowly catching up on my posts, but I still have a ton of cards that need to be scanned and posted. Bear with me; I will be trying to mix in some more non-TTM posts over the coming days.

I got this 2015 Topps Tier One Chris Davis relic from my buddy, Nate, who I have been chatting with for a few months, now. He is a really nice guy from Pennsylvania who I met when he sent me a random DM about a box break that he was hosting. I rarely buy into box breaks, but I decided to join, then he and I hit it off.
Nate surprised me with this nice Davis card for the PC. I wasn't expecting him to spend any money on me, but when he did, it was much appreciated. The card is numbered 186/399.
Thanks so much for the Christmas gift, Nate!
Dalrymple (b. 1936) played in the majors from 1960 to 1971 for the Phillies and Orioles. He had 710 hits, 55 home runs and a .233 batting average. He appeared in 2 World Series games in the Orioles loss to the Mets in 1969, collecting 2 hits in 2 at bats, for a 1.000 batting average.
I mailed to Dalrymple on February 18 and got the cards back on March 6, for a 16-day TAT. He charges $5/card.
Robinson (b. 1957) played in the majors from 1978 to 1992 for the Pirates, Giants, Angels and Phillies. He had a career record of 109-106 with 1,251 strike outs and a 3.79 ERA. He was a three-time Silver Slugger Award winner (1982, 1989 and 1990) and finished third in the 1978 NL Rookie of the Year Award voting. He also finished 8th in the 1978 NL Cy Young Award voting. In his career, he had 146 hits, 13 home runs and a .231 batting average, not bad as a pitcher. He also won the World Series with the Pirates in 1979. He appeared in the 1989 World Series with the Giants, but lost to the A's and was batted around in his only start.
I mailed to Robinson on February 15 and got the cards back on March 4, for a 17-day TAT.

So, when my friend, Zach messaged me recently about wanting to sell off some of his O's collection to raise money for some family things that had come up, I really was hesitant to part with any money. He had some nice Chris Davis relics that I thought would look great in the collection, but when he started showing me some of the IP autos that he had picked up, especially the Waring, I jumped on the deal.
Anyway, I really enjoyed the deal with Zach. I actually have decided to jump into the "graphing" game. I constructed a graphing book to take with me to Wood Ducks games this season. I am way late to the game, but I have enjoyed adding different cards to my album so much, I thought I would continue to parlay that into a new venture. We will see how it goes.
