I mailed to Garcia on November 7 and got the cards back on January 26, for an 80-day TAT.

Luckily, I got it for a LOT less than that. I also got it for exactly what I had left in my wallet, which worked out nicely. I had a great time at the show, Chris came with me and actually helped me this time. He didn't get too bored, and actually picked up a few things for himself. One of which was a really sweet Matt Cain patch card for an absolute steal. He may have done better than I did!
Bolling (b. 1931) played in the majors from 1954 and 1956 to 1966 for the Tigers and Braves (Milwaukee and Atlanta). He had 1,415 hits, 106 home runs and a .254 batting average. He was an All Star in 1961 and 1962 and won the Gold Glove Award in 1958. He finished his highest in the MVP voting in 1958 when he finished 16th in the AL voting.
I mailed to Bolling on January 17 and got the cards back on January 26, for a 9-day TAT.

I bought those because at the time, I had only one signed 1961 Topps. So, I figured I would beef up that portion of my ledger, and some of the cards I picked up really looked great. The first of the cards to come back was this success from Ray Rippelmeyer. The above 1961 Topps is his rookie card, and I really enjoyed how his uniform looked on this card. It looks almost like an early 50s Topps in that he appears to be a painting, as opposed to a photo.
Rippelmeyer (b. 1933) played in the majors for 18 games in 1962 for the Senators. He had a record of 1-2 with 17 strike outs and a 5.49 ERA. While his card from 1961 lists him as being on the Reds, he never made the majors with them. He was picked up by the Senators in November 1961 in the Rule V Draft.
I mailed to Rippelmeyer on January 16 and got the cards back on January 25, for a 9-day TAT.
Raines (b. 1979) played in the majors in 2001, 2003 and 2004 for the Orioles. He had 34 hits, no home runs and a .213 batting average. He became part of the second father/son tandem to play for the same team when his father, Tim, Sr. played for the Orioles on October 4, 2001.
I mailed to Raines on January 4 and got the card back on January 23, for a 19-day TAT.

I like Panini National Treasures. I now have several Chris Davis laundry tag cards, and am always on the lookout for more. Panini really does well with relic and patch cards. It doesn't make too much of a difference to me that the O's logo isn't on the card. This fits more into a player collection, anyway.
I plan on finding some more nice Davis patch cards, so the PC will keep growing. I feel like I have a pretty decent Davis collection.
