TTM Success: Jerry Lumpe

It's been a long time since I got a TTM success. To be fair, I haven't sent out a ton of requests. It's time consuming and I'm in a very busy period at work.

Anyhow, I recently picked up a 1958 Topps Jerry Lumpe, and sent it to him to get signed. It came back on Saturday with a perfect signature, defacing a hallowed vintage '58. Oh, the horror!

In my letter to him, I asked him about the time he spent in Binghamton in the minor leagues. He didn't answer. That's ok, he's 79 and probably has better things to do. Regardless, I'm happy to have this card back with a signature on it.
