TTM Success - George Vukovich

I got four cards back signed from George Vukovich on April 4.  This is the last of the ten successes I got that day.  Maybe I can catch up a bit, which would be nice.  I mailed to Vukovich on March 19, and got the cards back 16 days later.

Vukovich (b. 1956) played in the majors from 1980 to 1985 for the Phillies and Indians.  He had 430 hits, 27 home runs and a lifetime average of .268.

Following the 1985 season, Vukovich's contract was purchased by the Seibu Lions in Japan, where he would play in 1986 and 1987.  He played for Toledo in Detroit's minor league system in 1988 before calling it a career.
