Vance Law Autograph TTM Success!!!

30 days was all it took for Vance Law to return these signed cards to me.  The autograph looks pretty sweet and Law is one of the only players that I have encountered so far that actually uses the whole card to display his autograph.

While Law did not have an above-average career, he did have 1 brilliant season with the Chicago Cubs.  In 1988, his efforts landed him his only spot on the All-star team.  By the end of the 1988 season Law had accomplished the following – 163 hits, .293 batting average, 11 home runs, 78 RBI, 73 runs scored, and a 95.3% fielding percentage.

Thank you Mr. Law!!
