TTM Success - Bert Campaneris

I was able to get another of the 1976 Hostess cards that Max gave me signed with this success from Bert Campaneris.  The card was in a huge lot of cards that Max had sent long back when we first started trading.  I'm always happy to take a card out of that pile and add it to the autograph album.
I also sent away this 1977 Topps, and this 1982 Topps.  They both turned out really nice, especially the 1977.  It just comes off as a really clean, sharp card.

Campaneris (b. 1942) played in the majors from 1964 to 1981 and 1983 for the Kansas City and Oakland A's, Rangers, Angels and Yankees.  He had 2,249 hits, 79 home runs and a .259 batting average.  He was a 6-time All Star (1968, 1972 to 1975 and 1977) and finished in the MVP voting 8 times with a best finish of 10th in 1966.  His 649 career stolen bases rank 14th all-time.

He won the World Series with the A's in 1972, 1973 and 1974.

I mailed to Campaneris on January 11 and got the cards back on April 5, for an 84-day TAT.
