TTM Success - Joe Coleman

I got some nice vintage cards signed in this TTM success from Joe Coleman.  The above 1977 Topps father/son card turned out really well.  Topps has done this a couple times, and the cards are always nice.  I have gotten a few signed.  I think I have only finished two of them, though, the 1985 Schofield and Skinner.
I also got some of Coleman's base cards in, a 1969, 1973 and 1976.  The 1969 was beat up before I sent it in; it was a filler card in my set that got upgraded before I completed the set.

Coleman (b. 1947) played in the majors from 1965 to 1979 for the Senators, Tigers, Cubs, A's, Blue Jays, Gians and Pirates.  He had a career record of 142-135 with 1,728 strike outs and a 3.70 ERA.  He finished a career best 23rd in the 1973 AL MVP voting when he went 23-15 for the Tigers.  He was an All Star in 1972.  He won 20 or more games twice in his career, 1971 and 1973.

I mailed to Coleman on October 25 and got the cards back on November 10, for a 16-day TAT.
