Hall of Fame TTM Success - Phil Niekro

I got my 32nd TTM success and my 47th hall of fame signed baseball on Friday, September 9, 2011 from former Atlanta Brave Phil Niekro.

Niekro played from 1964 to 1987 for the Braves, Yankees, Indians and Blue Jays and had a career record of 318-274, 3,342 strikeouts and an ERA of 3.35.  He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1997 (his 5th ballot).

I mailed to Niekro on August 29 and got the ball back on September 9, making him an 11-day TAT (but this might have been shorter had I not sent so close to the Labor Day holiday).  He signs for a fee of $20 for baseballs and inscribed my ball with his HOF induction year.  Pretty nice signature, too.
