TTM Success - Steve Nicosia

I was able to add this nice 1981 Topps Steve Nicosia auto when I received a TTM from him on May 2.  I really liked the bright yellow uniform that Nicosia was wearing for this card.  Paired with the bright yellow border, this is a really vivid card.  I sent three cards to Nicosia for signature, but he kept two of them.  I feel like I got the bast card back, though.

Nicosia (b. 1955) played in the majors from 1978 to 1985 for the Pirates, Giants, Expos and Blue Jays.  He collected 233 hits, 11 home runs and an average of .248.  He won the World Series in 1979 with the Pirates.

I mailed to Nicosia on April 20 and got the card back on May 2, for a 12-day TAT.
