TTM Success - Don Demeter

I once again raided my vintage Topps box for some cards to send TTM and came up with this 1963 Topps Don Demeter.  It was a little rough, but it will look cool in my album.

Demeter (b. 1935) played in the majors in 1956 and from 1958 to 1967 for the Dodgers (Brooklyn and LA), Phillies, Tigers, Red Sox and Indians.  He had 912 hits, 163 home runs and a .265 batting average.  He finished a career-best 12th in the 1962 NL MVP voting.  He won the World Series in 1959 with the Dodgers.

I mailed to Demeter on January 2 and got the card back on January 19, for a 17-day TAT.  This was the first TTM I sent out for 2019.
