TTM Success - Orlando Pena

This was a really nice success from former pitcher, Orlando Pena.  I was able to get him to sign the above 1966 Topps and the 1974 and 1975 Topps cards below.  He also wrote a nice note in return with my cards.
Pena (b. 1933) played in the majors from 1958 to 1960, 1962 to 1967, 1970, 1971 and 1973 to 1975 for the Reds, A's (Kansas City), Tigers, Indians, Pirates, Orioles, Cardinals and Angels.  He had a record of 56-77 with an ERA of 3.71 and 818 strike outs.

I mailed to Pena on March 17 and got the cards back on April 3, for a 17-day TAT.
