TTM Success - Jerry Don Gleaton
The above 1992 Topps turned out the best of all, I think. A nice action shot on a horizontal card, I really like this one.
Gleaton (b. 1957) actually shares a birthday with me. I found that out JUST NOW! He played in the majors from 1979 to 1982, 1984, 1985 and 1987 to 1992 for the Rangers, Mariners, White Sox, Royals, Tigers and Pirates. He had a career record of 15-23 with an ERA of 4.25 and 265 strike outs. Gleaton was drafted in the second round of the 1976 Amateur Draft, but did not sign. He would later be drafted in the first round (17th pick) of the 1979 Amateur Draft by the Rangers, with whom he would sign and begin his career.
I mailed to Gleaton on February 13 and got the cards back on February 25, for a 12-day TAT.
