some timeless ttm successes and a contest reminder

first of all, don't forget to enter the contest for a certified pedro guerrero auto from 2004 upper deck legends timeless teams.  details are here - only a few more hours to enter!

here are some non-certified autos i have acquied through the mail over the last few months.  some good, some (well, maybe one) bad, but all appreciated.

let's start with a couple of 1969 cubbies - jim hickman
 and ken holtzman
i have had success with hickman (a former dodger) before, but this was my first attempt with holtzman.  i also sent along his 1978 topps card, figuring i would let holtzman choose which one to sign as he apparently signs only one card based on other successes i have seen.  he chose the upper deck card and rightfully ignored the card featurng him as a yankee.

here's another 1969-er, ed kranepool of the new york mets
i feel like i've been seeing a lot of mr. met lately between receiving his 1971 topps card in a trade and pulling one of his cards from archives  a couple of weeks ago.

yet another 1969-er, this time it's merv rettenmund from the first al east champions.  rettunmund signed both timeless teams cards i sent him (1969
 and 1970)
and then added another copy of his1969 card
that made 4 cards signed by rettenmund, as he also autographed a 1978 topps card i had sent along.
finally, we have ray washburn, who signed two cards for me - his 1964 entry in the set 
as well as his 1967 card
thanks to all who sign ttm, and don't forget about the contest!
