This Indianapolis 500 Signature Sunday post is different (and shorter) than the first two. In those two, I had met the drivers, and neither of them are with us anymore. I've never met Johnny Rutherford. That's highly unfortunate since he only lives about 30 minutes from where I do. These cards were all TTM requests. For the TTM fans, they were returned to me within a week. The address is on Sports Card Forum.
"Lone Star J.R." is one of just ten men to win the Indianapolis 500 three times, winning in 1974, 1976 and 1980. He also ran 35 NASCAR Cup races between 1963 and 1988. He won his first career race, a qualifying race for the Daytona 500. He went on to finish ninth in the 1963 Daytona 500, one of three career top-ten finishes at Daytona.
Anyway, on to the three cards I have (for now).
I have another TTM request that I need to get out. Once it comes back, it will be an AMAZING addition to my collection. I can't wait!
Next week I'll bring you my signatures of a four-time Indianapolis 500 winner. I feel that's the best way to honor Indianapolis 500 race day!
I've decided to try selling on Sports Card Direct again. Hopefully you'll take a look at my page and see if there's anything you're interested in. I can always sell off the site and ship in a PWE if you're only looking for a card or two and don't want to pay $3 shipping. I'm going to start listing more cards daily. It's time to get out of a lot of my stuff.
If you shop online and haven't signed up and used ebates yet, you're missing out. I also use it on eBay to get money back from purchases there. Between referrals and cash back, I've gotten over $150 in a year. FREE CARDS! Another $40 was depostied into my Paypal account earlier this month.
If you're on Twitter, please give me a follow. You can also find me on Trading Card Database. I love trading cards, when it makes sense. Happy collecting!
