TTM Success - Mike Stanley
The above 1999 Flair Showcase might be one of the best-looking cards that I have sent out. I had seen a few of these in a box at my LCS and was excited to see that Stanley signed TTM so I could try to get this one in my album. The card looks so much better in person, but scanned pretty nicely as well. This card had to be pre-treated with an eraser and it looks to have done the job.
The card on the right is a 1994 Pinnacle Museum Collection, my second such success from this parallel set. These cards are really great when signed, and I have a couple more pending.
Stanley (b. 1963) played in the majors from 1986 to 2000 for the Rangers, Yankees, Red Sox, Blue Jays and A's. He had 1,138 hits, 187 home runs and a .270 batting average. He was a Silver Slugger in 1993 where he also finished 13th in the AL MVP voting for the Yankees. He was also an All Star in 1995. Over 20 games played in the playoffs, Stanley hit .356, but appeared to be in the right place at the wrong time, leaving the Yankees following the 1995 season, returning in 1997, then moving back to the Red Sox. He just missed the Yankees World Series teams of 1996 and 1998-2000.
I mailed to Stanley on November 8 and got the cards back on December 8, for a 30-day TAT.
