TTM Success - Jim Rivera
The cards I sent were more from my trip to Columbia, the top 1953 Topps was probably the worst conditioned card that I picked up. Most hardcore collectors probably would have left it there since it was in that condition, but I thought it was perfect to send TTM. It did turn out nicely.
Rivera (b. 1921) played in the majors from 1952 to 1961 for the Browns, White Sox and A's (KC). He had 911 hits, 83 home runs and an average of .256. He led the league in triples in 1953 (18) and stolen bases in 1955 (25). He had 11 at bats in the 1959 World Series with the White Sox, but did not collect a hit.
