TTM Success - Jim Rooker

I got a few nice vintage cards with this TTM success from former pitcher, Jim Rooker.  I don't have too many 1969 Topps in my binder, so adding this rookie stars card from that set was nice.  I'll have to check and see if Mike Fiore signs.
I like seeing 1971 Topps come in for some reason.  This one turned out really nice, and I like the old scoreboard in the background.
Finally, here are a couple later cards, a 1978 and a 1980 of Rooker as a Pirate.

Rooker (b. 1942) played in the majors from 1968 to 1980 for the Tigers, Royals and Pirates.  He had a career record of 103-109 with 976 strike outs and a 3.46 ERA.  He won the World Series with the Pirates in 1979.

I mailed to Rooker on June 12 and got the cards back on June 19, for a 7-day TAT.
