TTM Success - Vern Law
I bought the above 1952 Topps off of Ebay, along with the below 1955 Bowman and 1961 Nu Card Scoops. I wanted to add another 1952 to the autograph binder since I like 1952 Topps so much. Law included some nice awesome inscriptions to the card, as well.
Law (b. 1930) played in the majors in 1950, 1951 and 1954 to 1967 for the Pirates. He had a career record of 162-147 with 1,092 strike outs and an ERA of 3.77. He received MVP votes in four seasons, with his best finish being 6th in his Cy Young Year, 1960. He won the World Series that season with the Pirates, and was on the NL All Star team.
Law appeared on the Hall of Fame ballot 7 times between 1973 and 1979, with his highest voting percentage being 2.4% in 1973. Law is outspoken against his autograph showing up on EBay, so he charges a signing fee of $10/card. I sent a check along with my request, so I didn't mind paying the fees. I had gotten Law on a ball back in 2012, which you can read about here.
I mailed to Law on March 14 and got the cards back on March 21, for a 7-day TAT.
