TTM Success - Alex Gonzalez

This was a pretty cool TTM success from Alex Gonzalez.  It is a bit tougher to get returns from more recent players, but there are a few of them, now, who are actively signing.

Also, I have so much mid-to-late 2000s stuff, it is hard and time consuming for me to go through those boxes.  So, being able to put some of those cards to use is always a good feeling.
I chose some nice cards of Gonzalez to send along; the above horizontal cards were really nice ones.  I like the 1960 design on the 2009 Heritage, and the 2010 Topps Update looks really nice.
I also added a couple mid 2000s to the album, a 2006 Topps and a 2007 Topps.  I would like to get some more 2006 Topps so I can add more to the album.  I used to have a bunch, but they were damaged when I moved several years ago.

Gonzalez (b. 1977) played in the majors from 1998 to 2007 and 2009 to 2014 for the Marlins, Red Sox, Reds, Blue Jays, Braves, Brewers and Tigers.  He had 1,418 hits, 157 home runs and a .245 batting average.  He was an All Star in 1999 and won the World Series with the Marlins in 2003.

I mailed to Gonzalez on January 8 and got the cards back on January 27, for a 19-day TAT.
