TTM Success - Jim Perry

This Jim Perry 1968 Topps was buried in my vintage box, not doing much of anything (I won't start the 1968 set for a while, it seems), so I decided to go ahead and send it off to him TTM.  It came back signed and inscribed with his 1970 Cy Young inscription.  The card looks great, in my opinion.

Perry (b. 1935) played in the majors from 1959 to 1975 for the Indians, Twins, Tigers and A's.  He had a career record of 215-174 with 1,576 strike outs and a 3.45 ERA.  He was the 1970 AL Cy Young Award winner.  He was an All Star an 1961, 1970 and 1971.  He finished second in the 1959 AL Rookie of the Year voting (to Bob Allison) and his best MVP finish was 9th (1969 and 1970).  He was a 20-game winner in 1969 (20) and 1970 (24).  He appeared on the Hall of Fame ballot in 1981 and 1983, but received at most, 1.9% of the vote.

I mailed to Perry on January 29 and got the card back on February 4, for a 6-day TAT.  I paid a fee of $5.00.  He included a note thanking me for the donation.
