TTM Success - Wally Moon (Second Success)

My Topps Autograph Project is really coming along nicely.  I have been working on racking up certain years of Topps, while also making sure that I have good representatives of each year.  I have gotten quite a few early 50s cards already.  Surprisingly, though, I have only gotten one 1955 Topps so far.  I got this Wally Moon autograph TTM on March 29 after paying his fee of $6.00 for a card.  I included an additional $4 for two inscriptions ($2 each).  He inscribed it with the 1954 NL ROY and 3x All Star inscriptions.

Moon (b. 1930) played in the majors from 1954 to 1965 for the Cardinals and Dodgers.  He had 1,399 hits, 142 home runs and a .289 lifetime batting average.  Like the inscriptions say, he was the 1954 NL Rookie of the Year and a 3-time All Star.  He won the World Series in 1959 and 1965 with the Dodgers and was also on the 1963 World Series Champion Dodgers, but did not make the playoff roster.

I mailed to Moon on March 18 and got the card back 11 days later.
