The above 1990 Topps looked really nice, once it was signed.

Baines becomes my 142nd Hall of Famer on a baseball.
Baines (b. 1959) played in the majors from 1980 to 2001 for the White Sox, Rangers, A's, Orioles and Indians. He had 2,866 hits, 384 home runs and a .289 batting average. He was a former #1 overall pick in the amateur draft (1977) out of high school. He becomes the third #1 overall pick to make the Hall of Fame behind Ken Griffey, Jr., and Chipper Jones. He was an All Star six times (1985, 1986, 1987, 1989, 1991 and 1999) and finished a career-best 9th in the AL MVP voting (1985). He was also a Silver Slugger Award winner in 1989.
Baines did not receive much support on the Hall of Fame ballot by the BBWAA. He only appeared on 5 ballots, and received a maximum of 6.1% of the vote (2010). In his defense, he appeared on some bloated ballots back then, and finally can say that he is a Hall of Famer.
In the all-time rankings, he ranks 46th in hits, 65th in home runs and 20th in games played. He holds a 38.7 career WAR, if that stat means something to you.
Baines spent 7 seasons in Baltimore where he had 638 hits, 107 home runs and a .301 average. My money is on him being inducted as a member of the White Sox, however. I'll have to continue to wait for a new Oriole to be inducted.
Corbett (b. 1962) played in the majors from 1988 to 1990 for the Angels. He had a career record of 2-1 with 33 strike outs and a 4.50 ERA.
I mailed to Corbett on September 19 and got the card back on October 22, for a 33-day TAT.

Jacob is a great dude. I wish I could get up to where he lives and go to Expos Fest with him. I'd need to renew my passport.
Thanks for the cards, Jacob. Those and the letter really mean a lot to me!
Joshua (b. 1948) played in the majors from 1969 to 1971, 1973 to 1977 and 1979 to 1980 for the Dodgers, Giants, Brewers and Padres. He had 610 hits, 30 home runs and a .273 batting average.
I mailed to Joshua on October 3 and got the cards back on October 22, for a 19-day TAT.
Oeklers (b. 1961) played in the majors in 1983 with the Twins and 1986 with the Indians. He had a 3-8 record with 46 strike outs and a 6.01 ERA.
I mailed to Oelkers on October 1 and got the cards back on October 19, for an 18-day TAT.
Friday, December 7, 2018
Terrell (b. 1958) played in the majors from 1982 to 1992 for the Mets, Tigers, Padres, Yankees and Pirates. He had a career record of 111-124 with 929 strike outs and a 4.22 ERA.
I mailed to Terrell on March 3 and got the cards back on October 18, for a 229-day TAT.

The above 2007 Turkey Red Chrome was my favorite of the bunch. I prepped the card before I mailed, and that really made it pop. Matthews has a nice auto that shows up really well on this card.
Matthews (b. 1974) played in the majors from 1999 to 2010 for the Padres, Cubs, Pirates, Mets, Orioles, Rangers and Angels. He had 1,056 hits, 108 home runs and a .257 batting average. He was an All Star in 2006, a season where he also finished 30th in the AL MVP voting. For some reason, the Angels signed him to a 5-year, $50 million contract after the 2006 season, and Matthews didn't really live up to it. At that time, the Angels must have had money to burn. Nothing against Matthews, but that contract was crazy from the beginning.
I mailed to Matthews on February 5 and got the cards back on October 18, for a 255-day TAT.

I also got two different 1972 Topps signed, along with a 1973 and a 1976. His signature is really nice, and looks good on all of these cards.
Kranepool (b. 1944) played in the majors from 1962 to 1979 for the Mets. He had 1,418 hits, 118 home runs and a .261 batting average. He was an All Star in 1965 and won the World Series with the Mets in 1969. He appeared on the 1985 Hall of Fame ballot, but did not receive any votes.
I mailed to Kranepool on October 3 and got the cards back on October 13, for a 10-day TAT. I paid a fee of $20.00 ($5/card).
Thanks for getting these signed for me, Jackson!
