TTM Success - Matt Belisle

It took a while, but I got a TTM success from Twins reliever, Matt Belisle recently.  I had sent to him during last season via the Twins, and the cards finally came in signed.

The above 1999 Bowmans Best turned out really nice, but the scan doesn't really show how cool the card looks.
This 1999 Just Minors looks really cool, as well.  A 19-year old Belisle is shown on the card.  I didn't realize he had been around as long as he has.
Finally, here are two similar, but different, 2008 Upper Deck.  The one on the left is a 2008 Upper Deck First Pitch, and the one on the right is an 08 base.

Belisle (b. 1980) has played in the majors since 2003 (he missed 2004) for the Reds, Rockies, Cardinals, Nationals and Twins.  He has a career record of 51-57 with a 4.19 ERA and 686 strike outs.  He signed as a free agent with the Indians on February 25, 2018.

I mailed to Belisle on June 12, 2017, and got the cards back on February 15, for a 248-day TAT.
