TTM Success - Joe Carter

I got a TTM success on March 15 from 1993 World Series hero, Joe Carter.  I mailed three cards to Carter on March 4 with a check for $5.00 and got only one of them signed.  Carter returned the other two.  I'm not really upset, but it would have been nice if he had signed all three for that fee, but I get it.  Different players sign for different rates.

The signature looks great.  The cards I sent were a 1994 Score Season Highlights card showing his historic home run in the 1993 Series, a 1989 Topps and this 1993 Flair.  I imagine that Carter has seen a ton of the 94 Score, so he chose this one to sign instead.  It is definitely a good decision, because the card looks great.

Carter (b. 1960) played in the majors from 1983 to 1998 for the Indians, Padres, Blue Jays, Orioles and Giants.  He had a very successful career where he had 2,184 hits, 396 home runs and a .259 lifetime batting average.  He finished as high as 3rd in the AL MVP voting (1992), he received MVP votes in 8 seasons, was a 5-time All Star and 2-time Silver Slugger.

Carter won the World Series in 1992 and 1993 with the Blue Jays.

I sent to him on March 4 and got my card back signed with a $5.00 fee (one signature per $5.00 request) and a 11-day TAT.
