TTM Success - Denis Menke

I raided my vintage box again for this 1968 Topps to send TTM to Denis Menke.  His signature turned out really nice on this card.  It looks so odd, though, without a logo on his hat.
I had his 1973 Topps and had to order his 1974.  Both cards look great.

Menke (b. 1940) played in the majors from 1962 to 1974 for the Braves (Milwaukee and Atlanta), Astros and Reds.  He had 1,270 hits, 101 home runs and a .250 batting average.  He was an All Star in 1969 and 1970.  He finished 15th in the NL MVP voting in 1969.

I mailed to Menke on April 9 and got the cards back on April 27, for an 18-day TAT.
