Nothing makes a mailday more exciting than the mystery of a TTM envelope. I don't send to many current players, instead sticking to high-percentage retired players. The results have been both adding some great looking signed vintage, but also learning about some less well-known players of yesteryear.
Danny Darwin spent over 20 seasons in the majors, including half a season in Pittsburgh. This Boston card is a bit of an oddball piece, since Darwin spent the vast majority of his career pitching for the Texas teams. Whenever possible, I like getting autos in unique uniforms or teams that a player didn't spend much time with
I have a few Larry Bowa cards signed from his tenure as Phillies manager, but found this rookie card in a quarter box. I've never been a big fan of getting the multi player cards signed, but I'm happy with the way the card turned out.
Jones and Wynn are two superstars who have perhaps lost a big of recognition over time. For the price of a couple stamps, I can't pass up the opportunity to add their autos to my collection. I had a tough time tracking a card for Too Tall. I thought he might be in some recent football sets, but never came across his card in a dime box. I finally found this nice vintage copy in a 3/$1 box, and it was out in the mail the next day.
