TTM Success - Vance Law

Here is a really cool addition to the autograph album from Vance Law.  I had heard that if you sent Law the above 1985 Topps Father/Son card, he would also have his dad, Vern Law, sign it.  Well, I sent one along, and was able to prove that theory true.  I thought that was a really cool touch, and adds something special to the album.  Vern Law also included the 1960 Cy Young inscription to the card.
I also sent these two Topps cards, a 1985 and a 1988.  Law has a really nice signature; one of the better ones that I've been able to get.

Law (b. 1956) played in the majors from 1980 to 1989 and 1991 for the Pirates, White Sox, Expos, Cubs and A's.  He had 972 hits, 71 home runs and a .256 batting average.  He was an All Star in 1988 for the Cubs,  He also pitched in 7 games in the majors.  He had a 0-0 won-loss record, 2 strike outs and a 3.38 ERA.

I mailed to Law on January 26 and got the cards back on February 10, for a 15-day TAT.
