TTM Success - Dan Petry

I'm trying to knock out a few posts this weekend to move some cards along, so here is my third post today.  I had Dan Petry's cards sitting in my box for forever, and I finally got around to sending to him.  I especially wanted to get this 1985 Topps Glossy All Stars card signed.  It turned out really well.
I also needed him for my 1987 Topps set, so here is the one I got back.

Petry (b. 1958) is not related to my good friend, Josh, as far as I know.  He played in the majors from 1979 to 1991 for the Tigers, Angels, Braves and Red Sox.  He had a career record of 125-104 with 1,063 strike outs and a 3.95 ERA.  He was an All Star in 1985 and finished a career-best 5th in the AL Cy Young voting in 1984.  He won the World Series with the Tigers in 1984, as well.

I mailed to Petry on January 7 and got the cards back on February 4, for a 28-day TAT.  I paid a fee of $14.00.
