TTM Success - Dalton Jones

I added some nice 60s and 70s cards to the album with this TTM success from Dalton Jones.  I had a few of his cards in my vintage box, and also got his 72 and 73 Topps cards from my boxes I recently picked up in Columbia.  He has a very simple autograph, wish he did in blue ballpoint pen.
Ballpoint pen actually fits with the vintage cards, somewhat.  The autos are very unassuming and subtle.

Jones (b. 1943) played in the majors from 1964 to 1972 for the Red Sox, Tigers and Rangers.  He had 548 hits, 41 home runs and a .235 batting average.  He lost the 1967 World Series with the Red Sox, but it wasn't his fault offensively.  He hit .389 (7 for 18) across 6 games.

I mailed to Jones on May 23 and got the cards back on June 11, for a 19-day TAT.
