TTM Success - Diego Segui

If the surname looks familiar, it is because a few days ago I reported a TTM success from another Segui, David, who is the son of today's success.  I got this 1970 Topps back from Diego Segui after I decided to try to get a couple Seattle Pilots cards signed.  This one was a beat up old card, but it still turned out nice.  It is especially great since you can see the Pilots hat and uniform very well in this card.

Segui (b. 1937) played in the majors from 1962 to 1975 and 1977 for the A's (KC and Oakland), Washington Senators, Pilots, Cardinals, Red Sox and Mariners.  He had a career record of 92-111 with an ERA of 3.81 and 1,298 strike outs.  Segui was on the 1972 A's that went on to win the World Series, but he was traded to St. Louis as part of a conditional deal.

I mailed to Segui on May 2 and got the card back on May 16, for a 14-day TAT.
