Before I send off any TTM requests, I do my homework. Gino Marchetti will always sign, but sometimes he sends a HOF card back with your cards unsigned. I wasn’t sure what I would get back, but much to my pleasure, Mr. Marchetti sent back the two cards that I sent!
Most of my favorite football card sets are pre-1956. Among the sets after that I consider among my favorites, these are two of them. Adding two autographs of a legend that made a big play in perhaps the biggest football game in professional football history (“The Greatest Game Ever Played”) makes for a great mail day.
As I researched to write this post, I also found that Mr. Marchetti was born in my home state of West Virginia. It made this return that much better.
