TTM Success - Dick Cole

I added one more 1954 Topps to my auto album with this success from former player, Dick Cole.  I was making a purchase on sportlots and decided that I wanted to fill out my cart with someone from '54 who signed, so I picked this up for a really cheap price (that I fail to remember).  The card turned out great, and Cole also included a signed business card of him as senior consultant to the Giants and inscribed 2010, 2012 and 2014 (World Series Championships).

Cole (b. 1926) played in the majors from 1951 and 1953 to 1957 for the Cardinals, Pirates and Braves.  He had 303 hits, 2 home runs and a .249 batting average.

I mailed to Cole on November 21 and got the cards back on December 1, for a 10-day TAT.
