TTM Success - Steve Balboni

I received a TTM success from another former Yankee, this time, one from Steve Balboni.  I mailed him 2 cards, but he only signed one.  The above 1984 Topps turned out nice, so there are no complaints.  I mailed to him on November 3 and got the card back on November 17, for a 14-day TAT.  He also returned the other card, unsigned.  It was a 1987 Topps.

Balboni (b. 1957) played in the majors from 1981 to 1990 and 1993 for the Yankees, Royals, Mariners and Rangers.  He had 714 hits, 181 home runs and a .229 batting average.  He finished as high as 19th for the AL MVP (twice, 1984 and 1985).  He won the World Series in 1985 with the Royals.
