TTM Success: Gil Coan

This is one of the TTM's that has been sitting in my draft folder for about 9 years.  I had this "extra" 1955 Bowman of Gil Coan sitting in my box of duplicate Orioles cards so I decided to send it out and see if he would sign it. At the time I sent, he was 92 years young.  He passed away in 2020 at the age of 97.  

Gil Coan played for the Senators, Orioles, White Sox, and Giants during his career.  He was the starting center fielder in the first Orioles game on April 13, 1954, batting 3rd.  

Sent December 17th, 2014, and  Received December 24th, 2014 for a 7 day turn around time.
