TTM Success - Eddie Kasko

Here is another nice TTM success on some vintage cards raided from my vintage box and 1972 set, respectively.  This 1960 Topps turned out really nice, even though the card was pretty beat up.  I still enjoy the 1960 design, and want to get some more of them signed.
This came out of my 1972 partial set, like I said, and looks really nice.  Kasko has a nice signature, and it worked well with this card.

Kasko (b. 1931) was born in Elizabeth, NJ, which as I have said before, is where my family has deep roots.  I didn't know that beforehand.  I wish I had looked it up before I sent, I would have mentioned it in my note.  Kasko played in the majors from 1957 to 1966 for the Cardinals, Reds, Colt .45s/Astros and Red Sox.  He had 935 hits, 22 home runs and a .264 batting average.  He was an All Star in 1961 and finished 29th in the 1962 NL MVP voting.  He managed the Red Sox from 1970 to 1973 and had a career won/loss record of 345-295 (.539%).

I mailed to Kasko on November 12 and got the cards back on December 24, for a 42-day TAT.
