TTM Success - Bob Oliver

I was able to get one of the cards that Max gave me a long time ago signed with this TTM success from Bob Oliver.

Oliver's signature wasn't all that great on this card, but I'm still glad I was able to add this 1975 Topps to my album.

Oliver (b. 1943) played in the majors in 1965 and then from 1969 to 1975 for the Pirates, Royals, Angels, Orioles and Yankees.  He had 745 hits, 94 home runs and a .256 batting average.  He finished 27th in the 1970 AL MVP voting (the season where Boog Powell won the award).

His time as an Oriole was brief.  He in only 9 games for the O's in 1974, yet, still appeared with them on this 1975 Topps.

I mailed to Oliver on August 7 and got the card back on September 5, for a 29-day TAT.
