TTM Success - Jon Matlack

I was really excited to get this TTM success back from Jon Matlack solely based on the above 1974 Topps.  This card is a beauty, and I really love how it turned out.
This 1973 Topps that I picked up from Conrad of the former Columbia antique shop really turned out nice, as well.  I met up with Conrad earlier this month when I was in Columbia for the Crawfish Festival and picked up an assortment of cards.  I got a bunch, and am happy with what I have gotten back so far.
I also added a few other Topps cards from 1976, 1980, 1981 and 1982.  I believe I have a couple cards signed by Matlack from the National a few years back, but I'll have to check my album.  At some point, I need to make a spreadsheet of all of the signatures I have on cards, but that is a plan that is a long way off.

Matlack (b. 1950) played in the majors from 1971 to 1983 for the Mets and Rangers.  He had a career record of 125-126 with 1,516 strike outs and an ERA of 3.18.  He was the NL Rookie of the Year in 1972.  He was also a three-time All Star between 1974 and 1976.  He appeared in the 1973 World Series while with the Mets and pitched to a record of 1-2 with a 2.16 ERA in the Mets' loss to the A's.

I mailed to Matlack on May 10 and got the cards back on May 17, for a 7-day TAT.
