2019 National Free Signer - Gary Peters

Another of the free signers at this year's National was someone who's card I was able to find in my vintage box was former pitcher, Gary Peters.  This 1968 Topps All Star card turned out really well.  I was surprised that I had it, but was glad to be able to get it signed.

Peters (b. 1937) played in the majors from 1959 to 1972 for the White Sox and Red Sox.  He had a career record of 124-103 with an ERA of 3.25 and 1,420 strike outs.  He was the 1963 Rookie of the Year, and an All Star in 1064 and 1967.  He won 20 games in 1964, as well, which landed him 7th in the AL MVP voting.  He was the AL ERA leader in 1963 (2.33) and 1966 (1.98).
