TTM Success - Denny Lemaster

Here is another TTM success that I was able to get on some nice vintage cards from former pitcher, Denny Lemaster.  The above 1963 Topps turned out really nice.  I like the old Milwaukee Braves hat.  The clouds in the background really look like the way the weather was here today, cold, cloudy and rainy.  Ugh.  It does make for a cool backdrop, though.
I liked the 1971 Topps on the left due to the old Astros jersey.  The 1972 on the right is cool, as well.

Lemaster (b. 1939) played in the majors from 1962 to 1972 for the Braves (Milwaukee and Atlanta), Astros and Expos.  He had a career record of 90-105 with 1,305 strike outs and an ERA of 3.58.  He was an All Star in 1967 while with the Braves.

I mailed to Lemaster on October 16 and got the cards back on November 6, for a 21-day TAT.
