TTM Success - Gene Conley

I got a few more 1950s-era cards signed TTM recently when I received these from Gene Conley.  This beat up 1953 Topps turned out really nice.  He charges a fee of $5 per card, which was ok.
This 1955 Topps card also looks really nice.  I am surprised at how many of these 1950s cards I was able to get done after my April visit to the Columbia antique shop.

Conley (b. 1930) played in the majors from 1952 and 1954 to 1963 for the Boston and Milwaukee Braves, Phillies and Red Sox.  He had a career record of 91-96 with an ERA of 3.82 and 888 strike outs.  He won the World Series in 1957 with the Braves.  He was an All Star three times, finished 3rd in the 1954 NL MVP voting and finished as high as 22nd in the NL MVP voting.

I mailed to Conley on May 2 and got the cards back on May 14, for a 12-day TAT.
