He didn't have to do that for me, but he did. This is why I continue to love the card community, and the Instagram community. I love the card and it is a welcome addition to the Davis PC.

Mitchell inscribed his uniform number and 89 NL MVP on the ball. He was surprised that I wanted it on the side panel below the All Star logo, asking me a couple times "don't you want it on the Sweet Spot?" I wanted the logo to show with the auto, and it looks good, I think.
Mitchell (b. 1962) played in the majors from 1984, 1986 to 1994 and 1996 to 1998 for the Mets, Padres, Giants, Mariners, Reds, Red Sox, Indians and A's. He had 1,173 hits, 234 home runs and a .284 career average. He was an All Star in 1989 and 1990. In his 1989 MVP season, he his 47 homers with 125 RBIs and a .291 batting average. Mitchell won the World Series with the Mets in 1986. He appeared on the 2004 Hall of Fame ballot and received 0.4% of the vote.

This 1963 Topps was a pretty cool card to get back, even though it was a bit beat up. I didn't have many of them to get signed, so adding this to the Topps Autograph Project was a plus. I only had one other signed 1963 Topps.
Green (b. 1934) played in the majors from 1960 to 1967 for the Phillies, Senators and Mets. He had a career record of 20-22 with an ERA of 4.26 and 268 strike outs. Green would go on to manage the Phillies from 1979 to 1981, the Yankees in 1989 and the Mets from 1993 to 1996. His career record as a manager is 169-130 with one World Series Championship (Philles - 1980).
I mailed to Green on March 12 and got the cards back on September 9, for a 181-day TAT.

Tommy John was the biggest name in the group of cards that I got. The rest were just random guys that I needed.
I'm hoping to get back to some National posts soon. I still have so much from there that I have yet to show. I hope it hasn't been too much!

James (b. 1958) played in the majors from 1978-79 and 1982 to 1987 for the Expos, Tigers and White Sox. He had a career record of 24-26 with a 3.80 ERA and 340 strike outs.
I mailed to James on February 22 and got the cards back on August 23 for a 213-day TAT. I actually sent three cards, but he only signed these two and returned the other unsigned.

Mark knocked four of the cards off of the list while I added ten from Sportlots. I have been on Sportlots for probably 10 years (or very close to it) and have enjoyed using it as a tool to help complete sets. I picked up the Stadium Club cards last week when I was working to complete the 1994 Topps set.
I also appreciate Mark helping me with this set. He also was very nice to help with the 1994 set.

This card came from the 2016 Topps Chrome Sapphire set, of which 250 were made. Not bad, but these aren't numbered. The card still looks good!
