TTM Success - Tim Thompson

Here is a nice card that I picked up at last month's Raleigh card show that I ended up sending TTM.  On it is former Tiger catcher, Tim Thompson.  I love the red cards from 1954, 1958 and 1959 Topps.  They all scan really nicely.  This one is a 1958 and it quite a bit worn, but it still looks great, and the way Thompson signed it pops as well.

Thompson (b. 1924) played in the majors in 1954 and 1956 through 1958 for the Dodgers, Kansas City A's and Tigers.  He had 123 hits, 8 home runs and a .238 batting average.

I mailed to Thompson on February 13 and got the card back on February 21, for an 8-day TAT.
