TTM Success - Roger Zatkoff

Another of the football autos I requested came in recently.  This one was from Roger Zatkoff.  The card is a 1956 Topps  and turned out pretty nicely with his auto.
Zatkoff also included his own index card that he signed, which was nice of him.  You can click on the photo to blow it up to make it easier to read.
Zakoff (b. 1931) played professional football from 1953 and 1958 for the Packers and the Lions.  He was a linebacker and defensive end.  In his career, he had 4 interceptions returned for a total of 25 yards.  He was selected to the Pro Bowl in 1954, 1955 and 1956.  He won the NFL Championship in 1957 with the Lions.

In college, Zatkoff was a standout at the University of Michigan, helping the Wolverines to the 1950 Rose Bowl Championship.

I mailed to Zatkoff on November 7 and got the card back on November 17, for a 10-day TAT.
