TTM Success - Paul O'Neill

I took a shot on a TTM request that I thought I had a decent chance of getting back, but I had seen that folks have had spotty results with Paul O'Neill.  This 1995 Stadium Club Ring Leaders card had been in one of my boxes for a long time, so I figured that I would go ahead and see what would happen.  I'm really glad I sent it off!  After I had mailed this card to O'Neill, I got a Ring Leaders card signed by Howard Johnson, but this one is still pretty awesome.

O'Neill (b. 1963) played in the majors from 1985 to 2001 for the Reds and Yankees.  He had 2,105 hits, 281 home runs and a .288 batting average.  He was a 5-time All Star (1991, 1994, 1995, 1997 and 1998) and his best finish in the MVP voting was 5th (1994 - AL).  He was the 1994 AL batting champion with a .359 average.  He won the World Series in 1990 with the Reds, and 1996, 1998, 1999 and 2000 with the Yankees.  O'Neill appeared on the 2007 Hall of Fame ballot, but received only 2.2% of the vote.  He is married to my sister-in-law's cousin, and his nephew plays for the Down East Wood Ducks.

I mailed to O'Neill on March 20 and got the card back on April 14, for a 25-day TAT.
