TTM Success - Eddie Robinson

I got a back a TTM success today that I had begun to think I wouldn't see again.  I sent this 1952 Topps to Eddie Robinson on March 19 and got it back signed today, for a 131-day TAT.  Robinson charges a $10 fee for his autograph, so I had to include that as well.

I had gotten him once before, on a ball, but I wanted to get this 1952 Topps signed.  The card looks great and his signature does as well.

Robinson (b. 1920) played in the majors from 1942 and 1946 to 1957 for the Indians, Senators, White Sox, A's (Philadelphia and Kansas City), Yankees, Tigers and Orioles.  He had 1,146 hits, 172 home runs and a .268 career average.  He was a 4-time All Star and finished as high as 11th in the AL MVP voting (1952).  Robinson won the World Series with the Indians in 1948.
