TTM Success - Fritz Peterson

I had met him a couple years ago at the National, but I found a few more cards, so I sent TTM to Fritz Peterson a while back.  The cards turned out well, even with the stray mark on my 1968 Topps.
This 1974 Topps was left over from what I had at the National, so it was nice to get it signed, and into my album.  The 1968 Topps was robbed from my vintage box, but I think it is better off having been signed, instead of sitting there waiting for me to start the 68 set.

Peterson (b. 1942) played in the majors from 1966 to 1976 for the Yankees, Indians and Rangers.  He had a career record of 133-131 with 1,015 strike outs and a 3.30 ERA.  He was an All Star in 1970 and won 20 games with the Yankees in 1970.

I mailed to Peterson on January 9 and got the cards back on January 28, for a 19-day TAT.
