TTM Success - Jim Kern

Here is a cool TTM success from the days of wild hair in the majors.  This success from Jim Kern was pretty cool, especially with the above 1982 Topps.  I just love how sharp the card looks after it was scanned.
I also added these four cards to my autograph album.  Topps cards from 1979, 1980 and 1983.  I also added the 1983 Donruss.

Kern (b. 1949) played in the majors from 1974 to 1986 for the Indians, Rangers, Reds, White Sox, Phillies and Brewers.  He had a career record of 53-57 with an ERA of 3.32 and 651 strike outs.  He was an All Star three times (1977, 1978 and 1979).  His best finish in the AL Cy Young Award voting was 4th in 1979 when he went 13-5 with 29 saves and a 1.57 ERA.  He also finished 11th in the AL MVP voting that season, his only time appearing on the MVP ballot.  He was also the 1979 AL Rolaids Relief Award winner.

I mailed to Kern on Febuart 21 and got the cards back on May 19, for an 87-day TAT.
