TTM Success (I Guess) - Ken Holtzman
Anyway, Holtzman (b. 1945) played in the majors from 1965 to 1979 for the Cubs, A's, Orioles and Yankees. He had a career record of 174-150 with an ERA of 349 and 1,601 strike outs. He was a 2-time All Star and won 20+ games once (1973). He won the World Series in 1972, 1973 and 1974 for the A's and was on the 1977 and 1978 Yankees teams that also won the World Series (although he was not on their playoff rosters).
Holtzman came to Baltimore in a trade from the A's that also landed the O's Reggie Jackson in 1976. Holtzman would later be traded away from Baltimore in a deal that would set up the 1983 World Champion O's (and the 1979 AL Champs) when he was dealt with Doyle Alexander, Jimmy Freeman, Elrod Hendricks and Grant Jackson to the Yankees for Rick Dempsey, Tippy Martinez, Rudy May, Scott McGregor and Dave Pagan.
I mailed to Holtzman on March 12 and got the card back on March 28 for a 16-day TAT.
