I also sent off this 1973 Topps buyback that I had pulled several years ago. It also turned out well, but definitely takes a back seat to the Astros Leaders card.
Tenace (b. 1946) played in the majors from 1969 to 1983 for the A's, Padres, Cardinals and Pirates. He had 1,060 hits, 201 home runs and a .241 batting average. He was an All Star in 1975 and his best MVP finish was 18th (1975 and 1976, AL). He won the World Series four times (1972-1974 - Oakland and 1982 - St Louis); he was the 1972 World Series MVP.
Tenace managedthe Blue Jays for 33 games in 1991 and amassed a 19-14 record (.576%)
Tenace appeared on the 1989 Hall of Fame ballot, but received only 0.2% of the vote. I mailed to Tenace on July 23 and got the cards back on July 31, for an 8-day TAT. I paid a fee of $15/card plus PastPros handling fees. I paid $20 for the card; $15 for the Lanier signing, and Menke was free. So, I put over $50 into the card to get it completed, and I'm certain it is worth far more than that. I'm just happy to have it completed.
