TTM Success: Bill Russell!!!

No, not that Bill Russell, this Bill Russell…

I got these cards back in the mail 112 days after sending them out and now I am half-way done collecting the autographs from one of the greatest infields of any era in professional baseball.  Ron Cey was the first, and now Bill Russell signs for me too!!

Bill Russell bleeds ‘Dodger Blue’, and he was an anchor at shortstop for many of the successful Dodger teams of the late 1970′s and early 1980′s. 

An 18-year veteran, Russell suited up for just one team during his playing days.  He made 4 trips to the World Series with them, in 1974, 1977, 1978, and then finally winning a title in 1981.  He was a 3-time All-star due to his solid all-around play that included speed on the base paths, solid hitting, and excellent defense.

GCRL would be proud!!

Thank you for signing my cards Mr. Russell!!!
