TTM Success - Lenny Dykstra

I added another card to my 1987 set when I sent off for another private signing through Sportscollectors.net.  This time, I added former Met, Lenny Dykstra.  The card turned out nicely, and I added a tough signature to the set.

Dykstra (b. 1963) played in the majors from 1985 to 1996 for the Mets and Phillies.  He had 1,298 hits, 81 home runs and a .285 batting average.  He was an All Star three times (1990, 1994 and 1995) and won the World Series with the Mets in 1986.  He finished a career-best second in the 1993 NL MVP voting, the same season he won his only Silver Slugger Award.

Dykstra appeared on the 2002 Hall of Fame ballot, but only received 0.2% of the vote.

I mailed to the private signing on April 12 and got the card back on May 5, for a 23-day TAT.
