TTM Success - John Donaldson
I noticed when I was looking him up, that Donaldson was a former Seattle Pilot. I thought it would be cool as a bit of a "sub project" to get some autos of players playing for defunct teams. I already had a couple St. Louis Browns, a few Expos, some Philadelphia and Kansas City A's, you get the point. I didn't have any Pilots. The problem was, though, I was set to send to Donaldson, but didn't have his 1970 Topps. I figured I would try someone else, but I mentioned in my request letter that I had the 68 but really would have rather found the 1970 to send to him. That's why I was really excited when I opened my envelope...
Donaldson (b.1943) played in the majors from 1966 to 1970 and 1974 for the Kansas City and Oakland A's and Seattle Pilots. He had 292 hits, 4 home runs and a .238 lifetime batting average.
I mailed to Mr. Donaldson on April 11 and got the cards back on April 16 for a 5-day TAT. This was another really quick TTM success, which I think was mainly due to him living in NC.
