Thanks for the deal, Stefan!
Burke (b. 1959) played in the majors from 1985 to 1992 for the Expos, Mets and Yankees. He had a career record of 49-33 with 444 strike outs and a 2.72 ERA. He was an All Star in 1989.
I mailed to the private signing on October 2 and got the card back on October 23, for a 21-day TAT. I paid a fee of $22.

Baines becomes my 142nd Hall of Famer on a baseball.
Baines (b. 1959) played in the majors from 1980 to 2001 for the White Sox, Rangers, A's, Orioles and Indians. He had 2,866 hits, 384 home runs and a .289 batting average. He was a former #1 overall pick in the amateur draft (1977) out of high school. He becomes the third #1 overall pick to make the Hall of Fame behind Ken Griffey, Jr., and Chipper Jones. He was an All Star six times (1985, 1986, 1987, 1989, 1991 and 1999) and finished a career-best 9th in the AL MVP voting (1985). He was also a Silver Slugger Award winner in 1989.
Baines did not receive much support on the Hall of Fame ballot by the BBWAA. He only appeared on 5 ballots, and received a maximum of 6.1% of the vote (2010). In his defense, he appeared on some bloated ballots back then, and finally can say that he is a Hall of Famer.
In the all-time rankings, he ranks 46th in hits, 65th in home runs and 20th in games played. He holds a 38.7 career WAR, if that stat means something to you.
Baines spent 7 seasons in Baltimore where he had 638 hits, 107 home runs and a .301 average. My money is on him being inducted as a member of the White Sox, however. I'll have to continue to wait for a new Oriole to be inducted.
Corbett (b. 1962) played in the majors from 1988 to 1990 for the Angels. He had a career record of 2-1 with 33 strike outs and a 4.50 ERA.
I mailed to Corbett on September 19 and got the card back on October 22, for a 33-day TAT.

Jacob is a great dude. I wish I could get up to where he lives and go to Expos Fest with him. I'd need to renew my passport.
Thanks for the cards, Jacob. Those and the letter really mean a lot to me!
