TTM Success - Tommy Brown

I added another 1953 Bown.  The card turned out great, I think.  I have always loved 1953 Bowman, and adding a couple of them to the album has been a lot of fun.  The cards really turn out great when signed, because they essentially are mini photos.

Brown (b. 1927) played in the majors from 1944, 1945 and 1947 to 1953 for the Brooklyn Dodgers, Phillies and Cubs.  He had 309 hits, 31 home runs and a .24 batting average.  He was a 16-year old when he started playing for the Dodgers in 1944.  He appeared in two games during the 1949 World Series that the Dodgers lost to the Yankees.

I mailed to Brown on March 14 and got the card back on March 23, for a 9-day TAT.
