TTM Success - Marty Cordova
I was always a fan of 2001 and 2003 Topps. Those color borders were really bold and stood out. The only drawback to them was the over-glossing that causes the cards to stick together. Thankfully, Topps has gotten away from that.
Cordova (b. 1969) played in the majors from 1995 to 2003 for the Twins, Blue Jays, Indians and Orioles. In his career, he had 938 hits, 122 home runs and an average of .274. He was the 1995 AL rookie of the year.
I mailed to Cordova on March 28 and got the cards back on April 8 for an 11-day TAT. This success really helped knock out some years on my Topps Autograph Project. With everything I have to date, the only years I lack are 1961, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1999, 2008, 2009, 2015 and 2016. This project really is coming along!
