TTM Success - Bob Bolin

I'm not the biggest fan of the Topps buyback cards, only because they're perfectly good vintage cards that I could possibly use in sets, but Topps insists on stamping them.  Yeah, I don't want that in a completed set, so I had a couple buybacks that I wanted to put to use.  I sent this 1966 Topps Bob Bolin buyback out for TTM, along with a plain 66 that I already owned, and got both signed by Bolin in blue ink pen.
Bolin (b. 1939) played in the majors from 1961 to 1973 for the Giants, Brewers and Red Sox.  He had a career record of 88-75 with 1,175 strike outs and a 3.40 ERA.

I mailed to Bolin on January 2 and got the cards back on February 6, for a 35-day TAT.
