TTM Success - Phil Roof

Here are two more vintage cards that I was able to get signed TTM with this success from Phil Roof.  I really like the 1967 Topps card on the left.  You get to see the Kansas City A's uniform, and Aa really cool looking catcher's mitt.  There sure is a lot of green on that card.  The 1977 on the right probably isn't Roof's best card, but it's not terrible.  They probably could have found a shot of him without a shadow covering half of his face, though.

Roof (b. 1941) played in the majors from 1961 and 1964 to 1977 for the Braves, Angels, Indians, A's (KC and Oakland), Brewers, Twins, White Sox and Blue Jays.  He had 463 hits, 43 home runs and a .215 batting average.

I mailed to Roof on November 19 and got the cards back on December 2, for a 13-day TAT.
