TTM Success - Frank Bolling

A day after my Ray Rippelmeyer success came in, I got another of the guys I found at the antique shop back.  This 1961 Topps Franks Bolling doesn't look as painted as the Rippelmeyer does, but it is still a nice card.
I had picked up a '62 Bolling at the shop and had the 1965 in my vintage box at the house.  That made for a nice little package to send out and see what happened.  Bolling has a very modest signature, but you can see it, so that's all that matters.

Bolling (b. 1931) played in the majors from 1954 and 1956 to 1966 for the Tigers and Braves (Milwaukee and Atlanta).  He had 1,415 hits, 106 home runs and a .254 batting average.  He was an All Star in 1961 and 1962 and won the Gold Glove Award in 1958.  He finished his highest in the MVP voting in 1958 when he finished 16th in the AL voting.

I mailed to Bolling on January 17 and got the cards back on January 26, for a 9-day TAT.
