Bobby Shantz is 97 years old and still signs TTM on a regular basis. I met him at the National several years ago, and he is a super nice guy. When I found a couple of Shantz's cards in some boxes I picked up in Columbia from my friend, Conrad, I had to send them out TTM and add them to my album.
The above 1975 Topps Mini is the first such card in the autograph album (that I can recall). This was a pretty cool card to pick up, so I am glad I can store it away in the album, now.
I also got a 1964 Topps signed. I picked up an assortment of 1964s from Conrad, and probably will be starting that set (along with 1962, I believe). Shantz also included his own 1954-design custom card since I included a donation with my request.
I mailed to Shantz on January 19 and got the cards back on January 26, for a 7-day TAT. I paid his fee of $5.00/card.
