TTM Success - Jim Colborn

I received a TTM success from former pitcher, Jim Colborn that landed me some 70s cards for my autograph album.

The above 1973 Topps is a really sharp card, and turned out well when signed.
I also got a 1978 and a 1979 Topps signed by Colborn.

Colborn (b. 1946) played in the majors from 1969 to 1978 for the Cubs, Royals, Brewers and Mariners.  He had a career record of 83-88 with 688 strike outs and a 3.80 ERA.  He won 20 games in 1973 when he went 20-12. t hat season, he pitched 22 complete games with 4 shutouts.  He was an All Star that season, and finished 6th in the Cy Young Award voting.

I mailed to Colborn on March 9 and got the cards back on March 23, for a 14-day TAT.
