Got this one back mid last week. What an amazing through the mail success. I love players like Jim Bunning who is widely considered one of the top 50 pitchers of all time, take the time to sign and send back ttm autograph requests. His career was legendary, two no hitters, including a perfect game. At the time of his retirement he had the second most strikeouts, currently he sits 17th. He appeared in 9 All Star games, he won 17 or more games in eight of his 17 seasons, a three time strikeout champion, and a World Series champion.
If that’s not enough he then led a life of a politician for his home state of Kentucky for the next 30+ years. Including being a member of the US House of Representatives from 1987 – 1999, and a US Senator from 1999-2011. What an amazing life he has led. I had decided to make the card of him as a Tiger for a few reasons. First, it’s where he won his most games and second he won a World Series there. However it should be noted that most people remember him as a Phillie. I apologize Phillie fans, for taking him away from you, but I had to make the card of him as a Tiger.
