TTM Success - Tom House

I moved some 70s cards out of my boxes when I got this TTM success from Tom House.  It starts off with the airbrushed 1976 Topps Traded of House.  They did a pretty good job with the airbrushing, I think.
I got this 1972 Topps Braves Rookies card signed.  I'll need to look and see if the other guys are living, and if they sign.
Finally, I added a 1974, 1977 and 1978 to the album.

House (b. 1947) played in the majors from 1971 to 1978 for the Braves, Red Sox and Mariners.  He had a career record of 29-23 with 261 strike outs and a 3.79 ERA.

I mailed to House on May 8 and got the cards back on May 14, for an 8-day TAT.

I'll always remember him as the guy who caught Aaron's #715 in the Braves' bullpen. TV networks broke away from programming to show Hank's at-bats when he was going for the record.
