TTM Success - Tom Murphy

I took a couple more cards out of the lot that I got off of Conrad and added them to my autograph album.  This success from Tom Murphy really turned out nicely.  The above 1972 Topps looks especially sharp.
This 1973 Topps also looks great; the blue Sharpie blending well with the blue in Murphy's KC jersey.

Murphy (b. 1945) played in the majors 1968 to 1979 for the Angels, Royals, Cardinals, Brewers, Red Sox and Blue Jays.  He had a career record of 68-101 with 621 strike outs and a 3.78 ERA.  He finished in 30th place in the 1974 AL MVP race.  That season, he pitched in 70 games to the tune of a 1.90 ERA.

I mailed to Murphy on April 30 and got the cards back on May 11, for an 11-day TAT.
