TTM Success - Roger Metzger

Another vintage TTM success came about with this return from Roger Metzger.  The cards I sent off were 1972, 1978, 1979 and 1980 Topps.  The above 1972 looks really cool, with the old stadium shot and some guy photo bombing in the background.
Not that I really look at it, all of the cards I sent are empty stadium shots.  That is always interesting to me, where they take the shots.

Metzger (b. 1947) played in the majors from 1970 to 1980 for the Cubs, Astros and Giants.  He had 972 hits, 5 home runs and a .231 batting average.  He was a Gold Glove Award winner in 1973.  For someone with as low a career average as he had, it is interesting that he led the NL in triples twice in his career (1971 - 11 and 1973 - 14).

I mailed to Metzger on February 24 and got the cards back on March 26, for a 30-day TAT.
