TTM Success - Juan Beniquez

I entered another private signing on SCN, this time for former Oriole, Juan Beniquez.  I needed him on an 87 Topps, of course, but I also sent in this 1986 Topps Traded card.  I ended up with a bunch of 1986 Topps Traded, almost a full set, and figured I should add an Orioles card from there to my album.
Here is the 1987 that I got signed.  It looks really nice, and I'm glad to cross it off of my list (which is now posted as a link on my Wishlist tab).

Beniquez (b. 1950) played in the majors from 1971 to 1972 and 1974 to 1988 for the Red Sox, Rangers, Yankees, Mariners, Angels, Orioles, Royals and Blue Jays.  He had 1,274 hits, 79 home runs and a .274 batting average.  He was a Gold Glove Award winner in 1977 and finished a career-best 25th in the AL MVP voting in 1984.

I mailed to the private signing on October 25 and got the cards back on November 30, for a 36-day TAT.  I paid a fee of $15/card.
