TTM Success - Roy Smalley

Another private signing allowed me to add another autograph to my 1987 set.  This one was for Roy Smalley.  He doesn't sign a whole lot, from what I have been able to tell, so I was glad I took advantage of the signing.
I also got this 1976 Topps Father & Son card signed during the signing.  I had a bunch of these in my box, so I wanted to get one in the album.

Smalley (b. 1952) played in the majors from 1975 to 1987 for the Rangers, Twins, Yankees and White Sox.  He had 1,454 hits, 163 home runs and a .257 batting average.  His best finish in the MVP voting was 16th in 1979.  That season, he was an All Star, as well.  Smalley won the World Series with the Twins in 1987.

I mailed to the signing on March 14 and got the cards back on August 28, for a 167-day TAT.  I paid a fee of $30.00.
