Usually, I will start on a player when I find an interesting card at the card shop on in one of my boxes. Ruffin came about when I was sorting my extra 1995 Topps for my set.
Ruffin (b.1971) played in the majors from 1993 to 1996, 2000 and 2001 for the Reds, Diamondbacks and Marlins. He had a career record of 10-6 with an ERA of 4.13 and 163 strike outs.
I mailed to Ruffin on January 24 and got the cards back on February 2, for a 9-day TAT.
