TTM Success: Bob Shirley

Another TTM success, although this was from a retired player and not from 2016 Spring Training. Based on my returns over the last week, I really need to just send to retired guys and forget spring training. Hey, 2017 Lost Collector, remember this post.

Former Yankees southpaw Bob Shirley signed four cards for me. I definitely offered for him to keep a few, but looks like he chose to sign and return them all. I like his signature a feels very lefty-ish with the tilt.

These all game out great. I'd say the 1987 Fleer is my favorite, as the signature pops and the photo is post-pitch (I think) as opposed to mid-pitch. The other three share a similar angle.

Thanks, Mr. Shirley!
