Two Returns Today

I send so few requests these days that it's rare to get two back on the same day.  But today, I did.

Jim Palmer finished off my 1972 Topps ERA Leaders card, already signed by Wood and Blue.

And I got back a card I sent off to Eduardo Escobar at Twins Spring Training way back in March.  Even though he got traded to the Diamondbacks, he was kind enough to keep track of his mail and respond.

I had previously bought this card signed by him thinking that I wouldn't get this one back.

A Four Year Success

I had all but given up on this one.  Nearly four years ago, I sent off this 1965 Topps to Clay Carroll.  The card had already been signed by Phil Niekro.  Carroll is a pretty good TTM signer and I saw a lot of successes recorded on SCN, so I assumed mine had gotten lost or something.

I had even begun looking for another card to start over with, but this showed up in the mail today!

Pitching Leaders Card Completed

Yesterday I received a return from Mickey Lolich, who finished off my 1972 Topps Pitching Leaders card.

I have the ERA Leaders card out to Jim Palmer and hope to receive that back any day.
