TTM Success - Pat Hentgen

I waited a while for this one, but I finally got a return from former Oriole, Pat Hentgen.  There were quite a few failures listed for Hentgen, but I figured I would send to him anyway.  I sent two cards, this 1997 Upper Deck SP and a 2001 Topps, but the SP was the only card that he signed.

Hentgen (b. 1968) played in the majors from 1991 to 2004 for the Blue Jays, Cardinals and Orioles.  He had a career record of 131-112 with an ERA of 4.32 and 1,290 strike outs.  He was an All Star in 1993, 1994 and 1997.  He was the 1996 AL Cy Young Award winner when he went 20-10 with a 3.22 ERA.  He won the World Series with the Blue Jays in 1993.  He was a member of the Blue Jays when they won in 1992, as well, but he didn't pitch in the postseason.

I mailed to Hentgen on November 12 and got the card back on March 20, for a 128-day TAT.
