TTM Success - Tito Fuentes

I still have quite a few TTM requests out from last year.  It is always fun getting one of them in, which was the case a few days ago when I got this TTM success from Tito Fuentes.

One of the cards I sen was this 1975 SSPC that I got from my good friend, Max.  This was in a huge lot of vintage cards that he sent me during one of our earliest deals.
The 1975 Topps on the left also came out of that deal.  The 1977 came out of some that I got from Columbia, I think.  Fuentes signed the cards with an old Sharpie, it seems.  I can't really complain, though, he could have chosen not to sign them at all.

Fuentes (b. 1944) played in the majors from 1965 to 1967 and 1969 to 1978 for the Giants, Padres, Tigers and A's.  He had 1,491 hits, 45 home runs and a .268 batting average.  He finished 3rd in the 1966 NL Rookie of the Year voting.  His best and only finish in the NL MVP voting was 20th in 1973.

I mailed to Fuentes on November 16, 2016, and got the cards back on October 27, 2017, for a 345-day TAT.  I paid his fee of $5/card.
