Warren Spahn Magazine

Yesterday I received a signed Warren Spahn magazine that I bought on Ebay.

There's a slight smear in the "S" in his last name, but not too bad.

Mr. Spahn was in poor health about the time I started TTM collecting, but was a good signer prior to that.  I regret that I was never able to send him a card.

No returns in the mail.  I'm still hoping to get one or two this week.

Dean Chance - 1963 Topps

Today I received a 1963 Topps signed by Dean Chance that I had sent in to an SCN member to have signed at a fund raising even in Michigan.

I also sent 12 requests this morning, so hopefully next week things will pick up.  This week could be pretty slow.

Bobby Wine Return

Today I received a return from Bobby Wine that I sent out last October.

He was kind enough to sign his 1963, 1964 and 1986 Topps. (The 1964 got a little smeared).

Dick Simpson

Today I received a couple cards signed by Dick Simpson.

He signed his 1964 and 1965 Topps, which was already signed by Jose Cardenal.

The cards took quite a beating on their trip to California and back.  They aren't creased, but they lost a lot of color and appear sort of scuffed up.

Here's what the 1965 Topps looked like before I sent it.

Felix Torres

Yesterday I received a 1963 Topps signed by Felix Torres.  The card got a little bent on its trip to Puerto Rico and back, but not too bad.
