TTM Success - Jay Hook

I got a TTM success last Tuesday (3/22) from former pitcher, Jay Hook.  I mailed this 1962 Topps to Hook on 3/12 and got it back in 10 days.  This was the first 1962 that I have been able to get signed.

Hook (b. 1936) played in the majors from 1957 to 1964 for the Reds and Mets.  He had a career record of 29-62 with an ERA of 5.23 and 394 strike outs.  Hook was a member of the inaugural Mets team (1962) that went 40-120 (ouch).  Hook, himself went 8-19 for that hapless club.  Those Mets were so bad, they didnt win more than three games in a row all season, and they only had the one three-game winning streak.
