TTM Success - Craig McMurtry

I added another signed 1987 Topps to my collection with this TTM success from former pitcher, Craig McMurtry.  The auto on the 87 smeared, but I'm still happy that I have the card.
I also added Topps cards from 1984, 1986, 1989 and 1990.  The 1990 was one that Chris gave me out of his collection, which was nice of him.

McMurtry (b. 1959) played in the majors from 1983 to 1986, 1988 to 1990 and 1995 for the Braves, Rangers and Astros.  He had a career record of 28-42 with an ERA of 4.08 and 349 strike outs.  He finished second in the 1983 NL Rookie of the Year Award voting (to Darryl Strawberry) and 7th in the NL Cy Young Award voting.

I mailed to McMurtry on August 7 and got the cards back on September 11 for a 35-day TAT.
