Time: 7 Days
Item Sent: 1963 Topps
Item Received: 1963 Topps, signed in blue Sharpie. Included note.
Tommy Mason was the first Viking. In 1961, he was the team's first-ever draft pick. So what Vikings collection would be complete without him? He signed his 1963 Topps card in blue Sharpie, inscribing "NFL 61-72," and added a note on the back of my letter that he wanted to try calling me to see how I wanted the card signed, but couldn't since my number is unlisted. Wow... that's a lot of effort from an NFL great. Class act. Thanks, Mr. Mason!
