TTM Success - Ron Hansen

My good friend, Drew, sent me Ron Hansen's autograph on a baseball a while back, but I have never gotten him TTM.  So, I figured I would go ahead and get my 1991 Crown Orioles card signed, along with a couple other Topps cards that I had in my boxes.
All of the cards turned out great; he signed the 1991 Crown and also a 1968 Topps and a 1970 Topps.

Hansen (b. 1938) played in the majors from 1958 to 1972 for the Orioles, White Sox, Senators, Yankees and Royals.  He had 1,007 hits, 106 home runs and a .234 batting average.  He was the AL Rookie of the Year in 1960.  That same year, he finished 5th in the AL MVP race and was an All Star twice.

I mailed to Hansen on April 27 and got the cards back on January 16, for a 264-day TAT.
