I got this card off of EBay, but it represents something of a challenge. I originally submitted a card to a recent Chris Potter signing with Spangler, however they misplaced my card and it didn't turn up until after the signing was over. I have been planning to send a card out TTM for signature, but have been terribly busy and haven't gotten around to it. I may do so yet, as I have a preference for blue Sharpie over ballpoint pen, but I am excited about getting this anyways.
This is, as the title states, the 46th card from the 66 card 1963 Fleer set that I have autographed. I have another one out TTM and a second out to a private signing, but I am pretty sure neither will end up happening.
When I send out TTMs I always enclose a hand written letter talking about things I find interesting about the player's career. What caught my eye about Spangler was that he was not a power hitter, having only 21 taters across 2616 career plate appearances, but he did collect a good portion of his career homers off of Hall of Fame pitchers. He tallied 5 homers total (1 each) off of Jim Bunning, Don Drysdale, Bob Gibson, Warren Spahn, and Don Sutton. That isn't alot, to be sure. But, it does represent 24% of his career totals.
