TTM Success - Sonny Siebert

From what I can remember, I haven't gotten a signed 1975 Topps in my album for a little while.  The reason is because I sent off a lot of my 1975 Topps bulk to someone who was building the set (and never got a thank you).  So, I am really low on 75s at the moment.  When I saw that I could get this one signed by Sonny Siebert TTM, I went for it.  The card turned out nicely, and looks cool in my album.
I also sent him a 1971 and 1973 to sign, and they both came out nicely, as well.

Siebert (b. 1937) played in the majors from 1964 to 1975 for the Indians, Red Sox, Rangers, Cardinals, Padres and A's.  He had a record of 140-114 with 1,512 strike outs and a 3.21 ERA.  He was a two-time All Star (1966 and 1971) and finished 28th in the AL MVP race in 1966.  He appeared on two Hall of Fame ballots (1981 and 1982), but received only at most 0.2% of the vote (in 1981 and none in 1982).

I mailed to Siebert on November 14 and got the cards back on November 26, for a 12-day TAT.  I paid his fee of $7.00/card.
