ron cey through the mail success. now with more perfection!

i posted a while back about one of my favorite cards. the 1978 opc/topps ron cey. in fact, one of my 78 opc cards has been through quite the travels with me.

well, now it has even more awesomeness. the penguin signed and returned it in 7 days.
i was a little nervous sending it to him for sentimental reasons, but he put all my worries to rest quickly.

he also signed a 1978 topps card i sent along.
so, this is the first step in my modest 1978 topps dodgers autograph project. here's the tally:

team card
dusty baker
glenn burke
ron cey - through the mail success!
vic davalillo
terry forster
mike garman
steve garvey
ed goodson
jerry grote
burt hooton
charlie hough
tommy john
lee lacy
tom lasorda
dave lopes
ted martinez
manny mota
rick monday
johnny oates
doug rau
lance rautzhan
rick rhoden
bill russell
reggie smith
elias sosa
don sutton
steve yeager
nlcs (davey lopes)

1/29 = 3%

cey's reputation as a gracious ttm signer has been well documented, and i am glad to have these cards in my collection.

thanks penguin!

It's only right that the Penguin is first on your list.
