TTM Success - Tom Grieve

I added a TTM success of Tom Grieve recently on a few nice mid-70s cards.  This 1975 Topps card that Max gave me turned out really nice.  The card was in great shape as well.
The 1979 Topps of Grieve on the Mets has probably the nicest signature of the trio, but the 1976 has probably the best looking uniform.  I got these two cards from the Columbia antique shop.  I need to take some time to go back through those cards and prepare another round of TTM subjects.

Grieve (b. 1948) played in the majors from 1970 and 1972 to 1979 for the Senators, Rangers, Mets and Cardinals.  He had 474 hits, 65 home runs and a .249 batting average.  After his playing career was over, Grieve was the general manager of the Rangers from 1984 to 1994.  He has also done color commentary for the Rangers since 1995.

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