TTM Success - Dick Tracewski

A new year is upon us, and I am still behind on posting my TTM successes.  I was ahead for a bit, but then, after the minor league season ended, I sent out a ton of TTMs and fell behind again.  It is an embarrassment of riches, honestly, and I definitely am not complaining.  So, continuing to plug along, here is a nice 1965 Topps that I got signed TTM by Dick Tracewski.

Tracewski (b. 1935) played in the majors from 1962 to 1969 for the Dodgers and Tigers.  He had 262 hits, 8 home runs and a .213 batting average.  He won the World Series with the Dodgers in 1963 and 1965 and the Tigers in 1968.

He managed the Tigers for two games in 1979, winning both.

I mailed to Tracewski on October 26 and got the card back on November 21, for a 26-day TAT.
