TTM Success - Ray Herbert

Yet another vintage guy came in recently, this time I got two cards signed by Ray Herbert.  The above 1965 Topps was a little rough, but it still looks nice when signed.  I think I got these cards from my LCS, instead of the Greenville card show, but I really don't remember.
This 1966 Topps also turned out really nice.  1966 Topps is a pretty underrated design, not as good as 1965, but still a decent design nonetheless.

Herbert (b. 1929) played in the majors from 1950 to 1951, 1953 to 1955 and 1958 to 1966 for the Tigers, A's (Kansas City), White Sox and Phillies.  He had a career record of 104-107 with 864 strike outs and an ERA of 4.01.  He won 20 games for the White Sox in 1962, the only season in which he was an All Star.  He finished 29th in the AL MVP voting that season, as well.

I mailed to Herbert on October 16 and got the cards back on November 24, for a 39-day TAT.
