A Well Loved Mailday

A lot of my recent posts have been about TTM autographs and that will be a lot of what you see going forward.  This card was picked up for that sole purpose.  At the age of 94, Charley Trippi is still signing through the mail.

I prefer getting vintage cards signed, but most of Trippi’s aren’t cheap.  Well, not cheap enough to fall into the price range of cards I like to send.  I did find this “well loved” cards from one of my favorite sets and will be sending shortly.  I just have to wait on a COMC order to arrive (it’s been two weeks and hasn’t shipped) that contains a 1955 Bowman I’d like to send.

It’s not in good shape, but it will do the job.  I love the 1950 Bowman set and also the “well loved” cards, so I’m thrilled to have this.  I hope to get it out very soon!
