TTM Success - Cowboy Bob Orton

A couple weeks ago, I checked SCN to see who recent signers were for the non-sports/other category and came away with a few people to send to.  I jumped on Ebay and picked up some interesting cards.  One of the people I checked into was WWE Hall of Famer, Cowboy Bob Orton. 
Orton (b. 1950) is the son of former wrestler, Bob Orton, Sr. amd is the father of Randy Orton.  He began wrestling in 1972 in Florida.  He wrestled for numerous promotions across the country.  He spent time in the former WWF, where he was involved in the main event of the inaugural Wrestlemania.  He was in the corner of Rowdy Roddy Piper and Mr. Wonderful Paul Orndorff against Hulk Hogan and Mr. T.  

Orton was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2005 and continues to wrestle sporadically. 

I mailed to Orton on February 12 and got the cards back on February 23, for an 11-day TAT.
