TTM Success - Del Unser

I took last night off from the blog because I went to a second Wood Ducks game in a row this week and was really tired when I got home.  I haven't gotten many TTMs in this week, so I am not falling too far behind, either, so it's ok to take a day off.  Still, I wanted to get this TTM success from Del Unser in, since I got some nice cards as a result.
I got the 1980 Topps 1979 Season Highlights card at the top signed along with the above 1976, 74, 78 and 80, and the below 1981.  They all look great; Unser has a really nice signature.
Unser (b. 1944) played in the majors from 1968 to 1982 for the Senators, Indians, Phillies, Mets and Expos.  He had 1,344 hits, 87 home runs and a .258 batting average.  He won the World Series with the Phillies in 1980.  He finished second in the 1968 AL Rookie of the Year Award voting to Stan Bahnsen.  He received MVP votes in 1969, finishing 23rd.

I mailed to Unser on May 10 and got the cards back on June 10, for a 31-day TAT.
