TTM Success - Dave Wickersham

There are TTMs I have pending that contain some nice vintage cards.  I do have stuff out there that isn't for my 1987 set.  One such TTM success came in recently that had a couple nice 1960s cards.  I enjoyed picking up these Dave Wickersham cards from my LCS, and turning them around for a TTM request.  The above 1965 Topps looks really nice, I think.
I also got a 1968 Topps signed.  I sent him a 1967 Topps, as well, but he returned it unsigned.

Wickersham (b. 1935) played in the majors from 1960 to 1969 for the A's (Kansas City), Tigers, Pirates and Royals.  He had a career record of 68-57 with 638 strike outs and a 3.66 ERA.  His best season landed him 30th in the AL MVP voting, due to his 19-12 record and 3.44 ERA.

I mailed to Wickersham on March 12 and got the cards back on March 20, for an 8-day TAT.
