George Altman and Ken Holtzman

I received another 1964 Topps Stand Up back.  This time from George Altman.  These cards don't travel well.  The cutout came separated a bit and I see a vertical mark across the card towards the right side that I'm guessing is from the sorting machines at the USPS.  I'm not complaining, but I'd think twice before sending one of the more expensive cards from this set in a plain white envelope like I've been doing with these less-expensive cards.  I'd probably wait for a private signing to send a more expensive card.

I also received a return from Ken Holtzman who signed his 1978 Topps for my set.  He signs one per request, so despite having more cards of his, I just signed the one from the set I've been focusing on.
