TTM Success - Felix Millan

Here are some nice older cards that I was able to get signed by Felix Millan.  I had the above 1968 Topps in my vintage box for a future set that I might build.  I've raided that box so much, and I've kind of put the set building on the back burner.  Still, I enjoy it, and I'll get back to some at some point.  Right now, though, I'm adding autographs to my album.
I also got Millan's 1973, 1976 and 1978 Topps cards signed.  He has a really nice signature, and all of the cards look great.

Millan (b. 1943) played in the majors from 1966 to 1977 for the Braves and Mets.  He had 1,617 hits, 22 home runs and a .279 batting average.  He was an All Star 3 times (1969, 1970 and 1971) and a Gold Glove Award winner twice (1969 and 1972).  His best (and only) finish in the MVP voting was 16th in 1973 (NL).

I mailed to Millan on May 5 and got the cards back on May 23, for an 18-day TAT.
