TTM Success - George Altman
I picked up the above 1962 Post Canadian from the show and didn't think much of it at the time, other than it would be a little something different in my album. For a dollar, it wasn't a bad pickup, but when I got the card back signed from Altman, I realized that it was the Canadian version. Now, it definitely was something different for the album.
Altman (b. 1933) is from Goldsboro, NC, but now resides in Missouri. He played in the majors from 1959 to 1967 for the Cubs, Cardinals and Mets. He had 832 hits, 101 home runs and a .269 batting average. He was an All Star in 1961 and 1962 and finished 14th in the 1961 NL MVP Award voting.
I mailed to Altman on October 30 and got the cards back on November 13, for a 14-day TAT.
