TTM Success - Dave Roberts

I saw that Dave Roberts was signing TTM and jumped on getting some of his cards out to him.  The above 1973 Topps is really cool.  I like the Topps Rookie Cup and that you can see the ivy from Wrigley in the background.  The best part about this card, though, is the ugly mustard yellow Padres uniform that Roberts is rocking.  That definitely gets your attention.
I also got him to sign a 1976, 1979 and 1980 Topps.  THe 79 is cool because of the catcher's gear.

Roberts (b. 1951) played in the majors from 1972 to 1975 and 1977 to 1982 for the Padres, Rangers, Astros and Phillies.  He had 483 hits, 49 home runs and a .239 batting average.

I mailed to Roberts on September 18 and got the cards back on October 10, for a 22-day TAT.
