Charley (Charlie) (Tim) Thompson - 1957 Topps

I received a return today from a player that has caused me some confusion.

Charley Thompson signed his 1957 Topps for me in just nine days.

I previously had Mr. Thompson sign his 1958 Topps and his 1954 Topps.  It wasn't until I went to send out this 1957 Topps that I realized these were all the same person!

His 1954 Topps lists him as Charlie Thompson.  This isn't too different than "Charley" and if it weren't for the 1958 Topps, I wouldn't have been so confused.  But, his 1958 Topps lists him as "Tim Thompson."  I thought my 1954 and 1958 Topps were from different players and the same confusion exists on SCN where there are two listings for him: one as "Tim" and one as "Charlie".

Anyway, here are the 1954 and 1958 cards Mr. Thompson has previously signed for me.
