TTM Success - Jamie Moyer
I sent so many cards because I heard that Moyer would sign anything that was sent to him, so I figured I would get a good representation of cards together and send them along. The above 1998 Fleer Ultra Gold Medallion is one I offered to Moyer to keep, since it featured him with his sons. He sent it back signed with the rest of my stuff, though, so I'm fine with that.
Moyer (b. 1962) played in the majors from 1986 to 1991, 1993 to 2010 and 2012 for the Cubs, Rangers, Cardinals, Orioles, Red Sox, Mariners, Phillies and Rockies. He is a rare 4-decade player, meaning he played in the 80s, 90s, 00s and 10s. He had a career record of 269-209 with 2,441 strike outs and a 4.41 ERA. Not Hall of Fame numbers, but he was a good pitcher for a very long time.
Moyer was an All Star only one time in his career, in 2003 when he went 21-7 for the Mariners. He won 20 games one other time in his career in 2001 when he went 20-6 for the M's. He finished as high as 4th in Cy Young voting, during the aforementioned 2001 season. Moyer had quite the lengthy career and finally reached the World Series in 2008 at the age of 45, taking home a ring with the Phillies over the Rays.
I mailed to Moyer on October 24 and got the cards back on December 6 for a 43-day TAT.
