TTM Success - John Castino

I got a few signed cards back from former player, John Castino.  I had found some of his cards in the 80s stuff that I picked up from the Columbia antique shop.  This 1981 Topps turned out really nice.  As I have said before, this set is a really nice one, yet is underrated.
These also turned out really nice and are, from left to right, 1983 and 1982 Topps.  I like them as well, but the 1981 Topps turned out the best, I think.

Castino (b. 1954) played in the majors from 1979 to 1984 for the Twins.  He had 646 hits, 41 home runs and a .278 batting average.  He was the AL Rookie of the Year in 1979.

I mailed to Castino on April 21 and got the cards back on May 2, for an 11-day TAT.
