TTM Success - Paul Heinrichs

A look at Wikipedia's list of oldest living former MLB players brought Paul Hinrichs to my attention.  I had this 2020 Topps Opening Day Team Traditions and Celebrations card that I wanted to get signed, so I figured I'd send it to him, since he didn't have any cards of his own.

He signed the back of the card in ballpoint pen.  I guess he signed the back because he may have thought the pen wouldn't show up on the front.  Still, I am happy the card got signed.

Hinrichs (b. 1925) played in the majors in 1951.  He appeared in 4 games for the Red Sox.  He holds no win-loss record, had one strike out and a 21.60 ERA.

I mailed to Hinrichs on May 10 and got the card back on May 18, for an 8-day TAT.
