TTM Success - Jim Bunning

I mailed to Hall of Famer Jim Bunning on February 2, 2011 and received this signed ball today (February 15, 2011). This was a 13-day TAT, which is pretty good. He also signed it for free.
Bunning (b. 1931) played in the majors from 1955 to 1971 for the Tigers, Phillies, Pirates and Dodgers. He threw a perfect game in 1964 and a no hitter in 1958. He retired with the second-most career strikeouts at the time (2,855). He had a career record of 224-184 with an ERA of 3.27. He is the only pitcher to have struck out Ted Williams three times in one game. His is my 19th baseball signed by a Hall of Famer and my 9th TTM success.

**CORRECTION - I just checked my delivery confirmation info; I sent the ball out on February 2, not February 8 like I has previously stated. It has been corrected.
