1967 Topps Luis Tiant Boston Red Sox Cleveland Indians

The mailbox can unkind again today, but it will not keep me from showing you another awesome part of the 1967 Topps Autograph collection.

On January 6, 2009, I sent this to Mr. Tiant at his home in Massachusetts and 9 days later in my mail was a great surprise. Mr. Tiant signed the card in a beautiful blue sharpie! What a gem!!

Card #377 in the set, Luis Tiant was a Cleveland Indians to start his career, but made his name as a Boston Red Sox. To learn more about his life and career, check out his biography at wikipedia.com.

If you have not seen "Lost Son of Havana", I highly recommend it. Very nice movie and story.
