1967 Topps Camilo Pascual Washington Senators

Today's subject for the blog about the 1967 Topps Autographed Baseball cards is that of Camilo Pascual, pitcher for the Washington Senators. Card number 71 in the 1967 Topps Baseball set of 609 cards.

This autograph was obtained with a through the mail (TTM) request to Camilo Pascual's home in Florida. I mailed the card on September 18, 2009 with a small donation. He autographed the card with a nice blue signature and returned the card to me 10 days later. I do not mind sending a small donation to the player or their charity as a token of appreciation for their time and attention to my request. Thank you Mr. Pascual for the autograph. As of February 23, 2010, I have 461 different autographs within the set and look forward to obtaining the balance of players, if possible.

Camilo Pascual played 18 seasons in the Major Leagues from 1954 until 1971. Originally from Cuba, Camilo started playing for the Washington Senators/Minnesota Twins franchise then went back to the new Washington Senators in 1967. He also played for the Cincinnati Reds, the Los Angeles Dodgers and finally ending his career with the Cleveland Indians in 1971. During the 18 seasons, Camilo amassed 174 career wins, had a 3.63 earned run average and struck out 2,167 batters. Camilo was named to the All-Star team in 5 seasons between 1959 and 1964. Mr. Pascual led the American League in strikeouts three seasons (1961, 1962, and 1963.)
