TTM Success - Bill Fahey

I got a lot of TTM requests mailed out from the 1975-1983 era of cards because I went through my entire box of 1981 Topps, organized them, and pulled everyone who was known to sign TTM.  I then went through my boxes of cards from 1975 to 1983 and pulled everyone that matched what I got out of 1981.  The result is a ton of guys to send to in the coming weeks.  I already had sent off a bunch, and they have been coming in slowly.  This success from Bill Fahey is one of them.

I really like this 1975 Topps.  This came out of an early trade with Max, who sent me a bunch of 1975 Topps a while ago.  I always like seeing these come back, because they make me remember that early trade and how he and I have become such close friends, now.
This 1977 Topps came out of my box that I got from the Columbia antique shop.  This card is really cool, because the faux signature looks identical to the real one.
Finally, here are a 1981 and 1982 Topps to round out what I sent.

Fahey (b. 1950) played in the majors from 1971, 1972, 1974 to 1977 and 1979 to 1983 for the Senators/Rangers, Padres and Tigers.  He had 225 hits, 7 home runs and a .241 batting average.  He is the father of former Oriole, Brandon Fahey.

I mailed to Fahey on November 22 and got the cards back on January 9, for a 48-day TAT.
