TTM Success - Tom Matchick
One of the cards I picked up was this 1973 Topps of Tom Matchick. I saw that he was an Oriole, and that he signed TTM, so I figured I would give it a shot. It took a while, but the card finally came in.
Matchick (b. 1943) played in the majors from 1967 to 1972 for the Tigers, Red Sox, Royals, Brewers and Orioles. He had 178 hits, 4 home runs and a .215 batting average. He won the World Series with the Tigers in 1968.
Matchick's time as an Oriole was brief. He was acquired from the Brewers in a trade in October of 1971 for Mike Ferraro and a minor leaguer. He played only 3 games with the Orioles in 1972, then was traded to the Yankees in April 1973 for Frank Baker.
I mailed to Matchick on May 8 and got the card back on November 10, for a 186-day TAT.
