TTM Success - Curt Simmons

My buddy Andrew told me about a 50s player who signed TTM in Curt Simmons.  I found a 1952 Topps at the card show last month, so I figured I'd add to the tally for that set.  The card turned out great, and I'm glad Andrew let me know about him.

Simmons (b. 1929) played in the majors from 1947 to 1950 and 1952 to 1967 for the Phillies, Cardinals, Cubs and Angels.  He had a career record of 193-183 with an ERA of 3.54 ERA and 1,697 strike outs.  He won the World Series with the Cardinals in 1964.  He was an All Star 3 times and finished his highest in the NL MVP voting at 16th in 1950 when he went 17-8 with a 3.40 ERA and 146 strike outs.

I mailed to Simmons on March 28 and got the card back on April 7 for a 10-day TAT.
