TTM Success - Gene Garber

I was able to add a bunch of cards to my autograph album with this TTM success from Gene Garber.  I had a ton of his cards to choose from, and ended up sending seven his way.  The above 1983 Topps Super Veterans card turned out really nice.  These are cool cards, and look good when signed.
I had a couple of Garber's 1970s cards, and they look pretty good.  I forgot that I had found his 1974 Topps, so when I saw it in his pile, I made sure to send it.
I also sent along several of his 1980s cards.  The beard on the 1981 Topps is nice, and the old Atlanta Braves hat/logo look really cool in that card, as well.

Garber (b. 1947) played in the majors from 1969 to 1970 and 1972 to 1988 for the Pirates, Royals, Phillies and Braves.  He had a career record of 96-113 with 940 strike outs, 218 saves and an ERA of 3.34.  He finished 7th in the 1982 NL Cy Young Award voting and also finished 19th in the 1982 NL MVP Award voting.

I mailed to Garber on September 1 and got the cards back on November 10, for a 70-day TAT.
