1964 Topps, Pete Ward
#85 Pete Ward
Here is a quick post of a card signed by Pete Ward. This is the second card of Pete that I have posted on here and the second one that was signed through the mail. I originally sent Pete his 1968 Topps card to sign in 2011. I obtained that card from the Topps Diamond Giveaway. I was content on only having that card signed until I came upon this card at the bi-monthly Wichita card show. When I saw that beautiful Topps rookie trophy on this card, I knew I had to get it and send it to Pete to get signed. So, I did just that and sent it to him in early 2013. I had it back seven days later.
Speaking of the Topps Diamond Giveaway, I really miss that promotion. They need to bring something similar to that back.
