TTM Success - Ike Delock

I added some more vintage to the autograph binder with this success from Ike Delock.  I was looking for some nice Bowman cards to get signed, and saw that Delock was signing, so I chose this 1952 because I liked his Boston jersey.  This marks the second '52 Bowman that I have picked up for the binder (behind the Bobby Brown).
I waned to add some of Delock's Topps issues as well, so I picked 1959 and 1962, since it has been a while since I added any cards from these years to the binder.

Delock (b. 1929) played in the majors from 1952-1953 and 1955 to 1963 for the Red Sox and Orioles.  He had a career record of 84-75 with a 4.03 ERA and 672 strike outs.  He was signed as a free agent by the Orioles in June of 1963 and released a little more than a month later.

I mailed to Delock on March 14 and got the cards back on March 21, for a 7-day TAT.
