TTM Success - Tommy Greene
For whatever reason, I don't recall opening very many packs of 1993 Stadium Club when it originally came out. I always seemed to have a ton of 1992 and 1994, but not much 1993. Kind of weird. Maybe I pulled the Ripken early and laid off of buying packs after that. Still, I had this card and sent it along. It turned out great, and I am glad I thought to include it.
Greene (b. 1967) played in the majors from 1989 to 1995 and 1997 for the Braves, Phillies and Astros. He is a North Carolina native, having grown up in Whiteville, a town where one of my good friends lives, and I have worked in quite a bit.
Greene had a career record of 38-25 with an ERA of 4.14 and 461 strike outs. His best season was 1993 when he went 16-4 with a 3.42 ERA for the Phillies. He finished 6th in the NL Cy Young Award voting. He pitched in the '93 World Series for the Phillies, but was lit up to a 27.00 ERA.
I mailed to Greene on November 5 and got the cards back on December 2, for a 27-day TAT.
