TTM Success - Ron Perranoski

I got a TTM success back from former pitcher, Ron Perranoski on March 28.  I saw him on this 1987 Topps Dodgers Leaders card, and thought it would look cool signed (and add another 1987 Topps to the tally).  I mailed the card on March 18, so it only took 10 days to get it back.

Perranoski (b. 1936) played in the majors from 1961 to 1973 for the Dodgers, Twins, Tigers and Angels.  He had a career record of 79-74 with an ERA of 2.79 and 687 strike outs.  He also led the league in saves twice, amassing 178 over his career.

He finished 4th in the 1963 NL MVP voting, and 7th in the 1970 NL Cy Young voting.  He won the World Series with the Dodgers in 1963 and 1965; and took home rings as a coach (again with the Dodgers) in 1981 and 1988.
