TTM Success - Bill Stoneman

I've been pulling from a box of 1973 Topps for cards to send TTM.  I've gotten a bunch of them back, and they kind of serve as filler for when I don't know who else to send to on a given day.  I randomly picked from that lot, and sent off this 1973 Topps Bill Stoneman.  I got it back signed in blue, and it looks pretty nice.  You also can never have too many Expos logos in the autograph album.

Stoneman (b. 1944) played in the majors from 1967 to 1974 for the Cubs, Expos and Angels.  He had a career record of 54-85 with 934 strike outs and a 4.08 ERA.  He was an All Star in 1972 and finished 8th in the NL Cy Young race in 1971.

Stoneman also was the GM of the Angels when they won the World Series in 2002.

I mailed to Stoneman on July 30 and got the card back on August 8, for a 9-day TAT.
