TTM Success - Bill Russell

I had bought a Bill Russell signed 1987 Topps for my set at the National back in 2019 at a really good price.  A private signing came up recently, so I decided to go ahead and send one of my own Russells in and get it signed.  It came back, and looks great, so the other one will be used as trade bait later on.

Russell (b. 1948) played in the majors from 1969 to 1986 for the Dodgers.  He had 1,926 hits, 46 home runs and a .263 batting average.  He was an All Star in 1973, 1976 and 1980.  He received MVP votes in 1973 that placed him 32nd.  He won the World Series in 1981 with the Dodgers.  He appeared on the Hall of Fame ballot in 1992, but received only 0.7% of the vote.

I sent to the signing on August 10 and got the card back on November 3, for an 85-day TAT.  I paid a fee of $20.00.
