TTM Success - Charlie Maxwell

It has been a while since I have added some vintage cards from the 50s to my autograph album, but I picked up a few when I saw that I needed Charlie Maxwell from my Orioles Crown set.  So, I picked up his 1955 Bowman, 1959 Topps and 1964 Topps to send along with the Crown.

All cards turned out well, and I was really glad I had mailed to him.
 I need to get some more vintage going into my album, but I haven't had much of a chance to pursue any, since I have been spending a good bit of money on private signings for my 87 set.
Maxwell (b. 1927) played in the majors from 1950 to 1952 and 1954 to 1964 for the Red Sox, Orioles, Tigers and White Sox.  He had 856 hits, 148 home runs and a .264 batting average.  He was a two-time All Star and finished in the MVP voting 3 times (best, 18th, 1957).

It's funny that he got a 1955 Bowman card and it lists him as an Oriole.  He only played 4 games for the Orioles, and was purchased by the Tigers on May 9 of that season.

I mailed to Maxwell on May 12 and got the cards back on May 21, for a 9-day TAT.  I paid his fee of $5.00/card.

I just looked, and it turns out that I got Maxwell TTM in 2018, as well.
