TTM Success Chuck Essegian 8 day TAT. New Project
I sent this 1959 Topps of Chuck Essegian to him on March 21st and got it back on March 29th, making this a 8 day success.
Essegian (b.1931) He played for the Phillies, Cardinals, Dodgers, Orioles, Kansas City Athletics, and Indians. Essegian and a career .255 Avg, 240 H, 47 HR, 150 RBI. During most of his career he was just a back up outfielder and didn't get much playing time. His best season was in 1962 with the Indians when he hit .274 AVG, 21 HR, 50 RBI. He only played 101 games that season.
Time to talk about my new project now. I have been doing a bunch of TTM's lately and have sent out a lot of vintage Cardinals, and have decided that I'm going to try to get every year of Topps signed by a Cardinal player.
