I absolutely love the acetate parallels. I hope Topps keeps them coming in future sets, but I still have no idea what packs they are pulled from. I have opened countless packs and boxes of Topps since they started doing the acetate parallels, and still have yet to pull one.
I hope to have some more mail when I get home. I have one nice Chris Davis that I picked up before I left town, and it should be there when I get home.

I think the trade worked out really well. It took a while to get here, because USPS delayed the package for about a week, but everything ended up getting in safely.
As you can see, I am finally caught up on TTMs, for the moment, at least. I have some other pickups that I want to get in, so there will finally be a little variety in my posts.

Congratulations, buddy, you earned it!
I love 1997 Fleer Metal. I have seen some really cool designs with this set, and I have gotten a few of them signed. The card looks a lot better in person, however.
Fassero (b. 1963) played in the majors from 1991 to 2006 for the Expos, Mariners, Rangers, Red Sox, Cubs, Cardinals, Rockies, Diamondbacks and Giants. He had a career record of 121-124 with an ERA of 4.11 and 1,643 strike outs. He finished 9th in the 1996 NL Cy Young Award voting, his only appearance on the ballot.
I mailed to Fassero via the Louisville Bats on May 2 and got the cards back on May 15, for a 13-day TAT.

Goltz (b. 1949) played in the majors from 1972 to 1983 for the Twins, Dodgers and Angels. He had a career record of 113-109 with 1,105 strike outs and an ERA of 3.69. He was a 20-game winner in 1977 and finished 6th in the AL Cy Young Award voting. He won the World Series with the Dodgers in 1981.
I mailed to Goltz on April 24 and got the cards back on May 15 for a 21-day TAT.

Nathan (b. 1974) played in the majors from 1999 to 2000, 2002 to 2009 and 2011 to 2016 for the Giants, Twins, Rangers, Tigers and Cubs. He has a career record of 64-34 with an ERA of 2.87 and 976 strike outs. His 377 saves rank 8th all-time. He was an All Star 6 times (2004, 2005, 2008, 2009, 2012, 2013) and finished 4th in the 2004 AL Cy Young voting (his best finish). He also has finished 12th on the AL MVP voting (also 2004). He is currently in the Nationals' system with the Syracuse Chiefs.
I mailed to Nathan on May 3 via the Syracuse Chiefs and got the cards back on May 13, for a 10-day TAT.
I also want to take a moment and change the subject away from baseball. I am a huge Pearl Jam fan, so today's news of the passing of Chris Cornell cuts me really deeply. I have listened to Call me a Dog from his acoustic album called Songbook (originally recorded with Temple of the Dog as a tribute to the passing of his close friend, Andrew Wood) at least 5 times already this morning. You never know what someone is going through, so please, take the time to tell those close to you what they mean to you. They may be gone tomorrow. #RIPChrisCornell

Nied (b. 1968) played in the majors from 1992 to 1996 for the Braves and Rockies. He had a career record of 17-18 with 146 strike outs and an ERA of 5.06.
I mailed to Nied on May 2 and got the cards back on May 13, for an 11-day TAT.
