TTM Success - Bob Speake

I added another nice vintage card to my album with this TTM success from Bob Speake.  The old 1950s cards really scan well, especially the red ones.  I do enjoy the solid red backgrounds sometimes.

Speake (b. 1930) played in the majors in 1955 and 1957 to 1959 for the Cubs and Giants.  He had 170 hits, 31 home runs and a .223 batting average.  He was actually acquired by the Giants from the Cubs in exchange for Giants legend, Bobby Thomson.

I mailed to Speake on June 4 and got the card back on June 14, for a 10-day TAT.
