It took me a while to find this card in my collection, but when I did, it went out for signature. It came back not too long after, along with a signed ad for one of Jordan's stand-up shows. That one was addresses directly to my wife, so that one went into her autograph collection.
Jordan (b. 1955) has acted since 1986, and aside from being known from the movie and shows notd above, he also has appeared on Will and Grace, American Horror Story and The Cool Kids, among a wide range of other shows and movies.
I mailed to Jordan on April 30 and got the card back on May 12, for a 12-day TAT.

Murphy (b. 1945) played in the majors 1968 to 1979 for the Angels, Royals, Cardinals, Brewers, Red Sox and Blue Jays. He had a career record of 68-101 with 621 strike outs and a 3.78 ERA. He finished in 30th place in the 1974 AL MVP race. That season, he pitched in 70 games to the tune of a 1.90 ERA.
I mailed to Murphy on April 30 and got the cards back on May 11, for an 11-day TAT.

I had picked up some of Raines's cards because I thought I would see him while he was coaching Aberdeen. I never got there, and he isn't coaching there anymore.
I mailed to Raines on April 27 and got the cards back on May 11, for a 14-day TAT.

First off, the above 1989 Bowman turned out really well. I actually like this design, and have a lot of the cards, but the odd sizing of the cards lends to them getting destroyed in my boxes, and I also have to get specialty album pages to hold them. Still, when one can come back signed, they tend to look great, as has this Ballard.
Ballard (b. 1963) played in the majors from 1987 to 1991 and 1993 to 1994 for the Orioles and Pirates. He had a career record of 41-53 with 244 strike outs and a 4.71 ERA. He went 18-8 with a 3.43 ERA during the Orioles 1989 "Why Not" campaign. This earned him a 6th place finish in the AL Cy Young voting. It's funny, Topps had Ballard as an AL All Star on the 1990 Topps, but baseball-reference doesn't give him credit as an All Star. I did a quick check, and it seems that Ballard wasn't ever an All Star; maybe Topps was just recognizing that he had a good year in 1989.
I mailed to Ballard on March 9 and got the cards back on May 11, for a 63-day TAT.
I was disappointed, too, because I figured that if I sent via the HOF, I had a good shot of getting a legit signature back. However, that wasn't the case, and I have a couple of novelty cards in my album.
I mailed to the Hall of Fame on April 23 and got these cards back on May 11, for an 18-day TAT.
