TTM Success - Garry Templeton

I used PastPros to knock another card off of my checklist (which is now posted as a link on my wishlist tab).  I had been wanting to send to Garry Templeton for a long time, and finally got around to it.  The card looks really nice.

Templeton (b. 1956) played in the majors from 1976 to 1991 for the Cardinals, Padres and Mets.  He had 2,096 hits, 70 home runs and a .271 batting average.  He was a three-time All Star (1977, 1979 and 1985) and two-time Silver Slugger Award winner (1980 and 1984).  His best finish in the NL MVP voting was 13th in 1977.  He led the NL in hits in 1979 with 211.

I mailed to Templeton on November 6 and got the card back on November 19, for a 13-day TAT.  I paid the PastPros fee of $12.00.
