TTM Success - Don Sutton

I was able to get a Hall of Famer TTM with this success from Don Sutton.  He charges $5/card, but this was well worth the $25 check that I sent along.  This 2008 Donruss Threads turned out really nice.
I added some nice Topps to the binder as well.  The 1968 was in my vintage box, and I thought I had a 1987 Topps in my two boxes of thousands of 87s, but for whatever reason, I didn't have a single Sutton.  I had to get one from my friend, Gerard.  I finally got one, and was able to get the TTM request out.  Finally, I can't remember the last 1988 Topps that I got in, so that's why I added one to this request, or I would have stayed at 4.

Sutton (b. 1945) played in the majors from 1966 to 1988 for the Dodgers, Astros, Brewers, A's and Angels.  He had a career record of 324-256 with an ERA of 3.26 and 3,574 strike outs.  He was a 4-time All Star and his best finish in the Cy Young voting was 3rd in 1976.  He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1998 (5th year on the ballot) when he received 81.6% of the vote.

I mailed to Sutton on May 17 and got the cards back on June 22, for a 36-day TAT.  He charges $5/card.
