TTM Success - Leon Roberts

I got a couple nice 80s cards signed by former player, Leon Roberts.  Both of the cards turned out great.  I really liked the 1981 Topps (on the left), since it had the really old Mariners jersey.  The 1985 looks ok, but the Royals jersey kind of blends into the background a bit too much.

Roberts (b. 1951) played in the majors from 1974 to 1984 for the Tigers, Astros, Mariners, Rangers, Blue Jays and Royals.  He had 731 hits, 78 home runs and a .267 batting average.  He finished 33rd in the 1978 AL MVP voting (the only time he received votes).

I mailed to Roberts on April 30 and got the cards back on May 9 for a 9-day TAT.
