TTM Success - Vern Law

After a long day of work, I came home to a nice padded mailer in my mailbox which could only mean that I had a TTM waiting for me.  Inside my package was this ball, signed by former Pirate pitcher, Vern Law.
Law (b. 1930) played from 1950, 51, 54-67 all for the Pirates.  He won the Cy Young Award in 1960, when only one award was handed out, instead of one per league as it is now.  He also won the World Series with the Pirates that same year.  Law retired with a record of 162-147, 1,092 strikeouts and a 3.77 ERA.
Law is my 60th TTM success.  I mailed to him on June 13 and got my ball back signed today (June 19) making him a 6-day TAT.  He charges a fee of $8.00 for a signature on a ball, which I feel is well worth it.
