Parrish (b. 1956) played in the majors from 1977 to 1995 for the Tigers, Phillies, Angels, Mariners, Indians, Pirates and Blue Jays. He had 1,782 hits, 324 home runs and a .252 batting average. He won the World Series with the Tigers in 1984. He was an 8-time All Star and his best finish for the MVP award was 9th (1983). He was a Silver Slugger Award winner in 1980, 1982, 1983, 1984, 1986 and 1990. He won the Gold Glove Award in 1983, 1984 and 1985. Parrish appeared on the Hall of Fame ballot in 2001 and received only 1.7% of the vote.
I originally mailed to Parrish on February 18, 2016, but never got those cards back. I mailed to him again on June 10 of this year via the Erie SeaWolves, and got the cards back on August 4, for a 55-day TAT.

I now have a couple signed 1992 Studio in my album. Studio was always a nice product to open, and now they are really nice cards to get signed.
I don't have a lot of bulk 1991 Topps for some odd reason. I have come across several cheap boxes of it, but for whatever reason, the bulk stuff left over always disappears or ends up with someone else. I think the last box I busted was during pack wars with Andrew, and I think his little brother ended up with a lot of the base.
Mayne (b. 1968) played in the majors from 1990 to 2004 for the Royals, Mets, A's Giants, Rockies, Diamondbacks and Dodgers. He had 951 hits, 38 home runs and a .263 batting average.
I mailed to Mayne on March 23 and got the cards back on July 28, for a 127-day TAT. He kept three of the cards I sent.

I hadn't added anything to the Hobgood PC in a long time. He was a bust as far as 4th overall picks go, but every time I talked with him, he was super nice. Just a really good kid who was plagued by shoulder issues. I really wish he could have taken off as a prospect, but it just wasn't meant to be. This is probably why I'm not a scout. I would have too much of an emotional investment in a player based on their personality; I would have a hard time telling them that their time is done as a prospect. Oh well. From everything that I have seen, Matt is enjoying life and is doing well. That's all that really matter in the end, anyway, right?

Bell (b. 1972) played in the majors from 1995 to 2006 for the Indians, Cardinals, Mariners, Giants, Phillies and Brewers. He had 1,239 hits, 123 home runs and a .257 batting average.
I mailed to Bell on April 4 and got the cards back on July 29, for a 116-day TAT.
I have one more series that I am for sure taking in, Lynchburg next weekend. I have no idea how I am going to be able to stand the offseason, but I likely will be spending it reloading and relaxing in anticipation of the 2018 minor league season.

I wanted to fire off a post really quickly on these cards that I got back from Billy Hatcher. I mailed to him via the Reds on May 12 and got the cards back on July 24, for a 73-day TAT.

The above Ti-Quan Forbes was a box topper from one of the boxes of 2013 Perfect Game. The card turned out really nice.
Now, I am off to try to get more Mudcats.
