THROUGH THE MAIL SUCCESS: ROY SIEVERS

I got this back yesterday afternoon in the mail.  It’s the second of the new throughIMG_5165[1]
the mail mini cards I recently sent out.  This is one that is business card size.  I really wanted Roy Siever’s autograph because he’s a former Rookie of the Year (1949) and got robbed in MVP voting in 1957.  He fits under my Hall of Fame or All Star Collection.  He had a 17 year career the spanned 1949 – 1965.  He was a four time All Star in 1956, 1957, 1959 and 1961.  The most controversial year of his career was when he led the league in homers, RBIs, total bases and extra base hits, but came 3rd in MVP voting behind Mantle and Williams.  His batting average was much lower than those two but he led in most of the other importantIMG_5166[1] statistical categories.  His career and statistics are very close to the likes of Jack Clark, Ron Gant, Greg Luzinski, and WIllie Horton.  Not quite a Hall of Fame level player, but probably just below that level. The final piece of trivia I have is that he was one of nine players that suited up for both the Original Washington Senators and the expansion Senators.


So how did this TTM break down?
