TTM Success - Bill Campbell

I had a nice assortment of cards come in signed TTM from former pitcher, Bill Campbell.  I had to add his 1987 Topps (above) to the album, and ended up choosing several other Topps issues to send out.
I liked this 1976 Topps, and it came out really well.  This looks like a Spring Training shot, based on the size of the bleachers in the background.  Those look like they could be palm trees in the background as well.
Here are the other cards I got back, left to right top 1979, 1980, bottom 1982 and 1983.

Campbell (b. 1948) played in the majors from 1973 to 1987 for the Twins, Red Sox, Cubs, Phillies, Cardinals, Tigers and Expos.  He had a career record of 83-68 with 864 strike outs and an ERA of 3.54.  He also had 126 saves in his career, leading the league in 1977 with 31.  His best finish for the AL Cy Young was 5th in 1977 and his best finish in the AL MVP voting was 8th in 1976.  He was an All Star in 1977.

I mailed to Campbell on September 20 and got the cards back on September 28, for an 8-day TAT.
