TTM Success - Mark Thurmond
His signature looks really cool, too, almost like a star. I had a ton of Thurmond cards, and it was tough to choose which to send, especially since I had a couple of him as an Oriole, but in the end, the '84 Tiffany won out. I figured, since it was unique to my collection, I should hold onto it in the auto album, instead of relegate it to a dime or nickel box. I think it turned out great.
Thurmond (b. 1956) played in the majors from 1983 to 1990 for the Padres, Tigers, Orioles and Giants. He had a career record of 40-46 with an ERA of 3.69 and 320 strike outs.
I believe this is his rookie card, if I am not mistaken, so that makes it an even better choice for TTM. Since it is a parallel, I don't count it toward my Topps Autograph Project.
