One of the cards I got back was this nice 1983 Topps rookie card. I had forgotten that I had his rookie in my 83 box, but found it and sent it along.
Since he is pictured on the 1987 Twins Leaders card, I was able to knock that one out as well.
Viola (b. 1960) played in the majors from 1982 to 1996 for the Twins, Mets, Red Sox, Reds and Blue Jays. He had a career record of 176-150 with 1,844 strike outs and an ERA of 3.73. He was the 1988 AL Cy Young Award winner when he went 24-7 with a 2.64 ERA and had 193 strike outs. He finished 10th in the AL MVP voting that season. He also won 20 games for the Mets in 1990 when he went 20-12 and finished 3rd in the NL Cy Young voting. He was an All Star three times (1988, 1990 and 1991) and won the World Series with the Twins in 1987. He was the World Series MVP that year when he went 2-1 with a 3.72 ERA and had 16 strike outs.
He appeared on the 2002 Hall of Fame ballot, but only received 0.4% of the vote.
I mailed to Viola on January 22 and got the cards back on January 31, for a 9-day TAT. I paid his fee of $5/card.

I liked how this 1989 Topps looked, and it turned out really nicely with his signature.
Bene (b. 1967) was drafted in the first round (5th overall) by the Dodgers in the 1988 amateur draft out of Cal State LA. He never made the majors, but played in the minors from 1988 to 1995 and 1997 in the Dodgers, Reds and Angels systems. He did get as far as AAA. Across 9 minor league and independent league seasons, he had a career record of 18-34 with 502 strike outs and a 5.45 ERA.
I mailed to Bene on January 16 and got the card back on January 30, for a 14-day TAT.

I mailed to Lewis on January 12 and got the cards back on January 29, for a 17-day TAT.

The cards turned out really nice. I kept the second card in my extras stack in case I needed an auto to send to someone for trade, especially if that someone was into older Topps autos. If not, I can always include it as a gift for a future trade.
Lubratich (b. 1955) played in the majors in 1981 and 1983 for the Angels. He had 37 hits, no home runs and a .209 batting average. I mailed to him on January 6 and got the cards back on January 29, for a 13-day TAT.

Dawley (b. 1958) played in the majors from 1983 to 1989 for the Astros, White Sox, Cardinals, Phillies and A's. He had a career record of 27-30 with 292 strike outs and an ERA of 3.42. He was an All Star in 1983.
I mailed to Dawley on January 18 and got the cards back on January 29, for an 11-day TAT.
