TTM Success - Jeff Reardon

I have gotten some nice TTM returns lately from guys who played quite a while in MLB.  This success from Jeff Reardon was one of them.  I had a ton of cards to choose from of him, and narrowed it down to 6 cards.

This 1991 O Pee Chee turned out really nice, and I don't believe I have any in my autograph albums.  I think this came out of a repack box that I got recently, so it may have been a late addition to my "to be TTMed" box.
Of course I had to add a 1987 Topps to the binder.  I'm pushing closer to 100 signed cards from that set, which is pretty nice.  It means I was able to get at least 100 cards out of my bulk box!
Here are the other cards that I got back.  I chose to do base and additional of 1986 and 1992 Topps.  Top row we have the 1986 base and 1986 All Star and bottom we have 1992 base and 1992 record breaker.

Reardon (b. 1955) played in the majors from 1979 to 1994 for the Mets, Expos, Twins, Red Sox, Braves, Reds and Yankees.  He had  record of 73-77 with 877 strike outs and 3.16 ERA.  He had 367 saves in his career, leading the NL in 1985 with 41 while with the Expos.  He was an All Star in 1985, 1986, 1988 and 1991.  His best finish for the Cy Young Award was 5th (NL) in 1985 and for MVP was 11th (AL) in 1987.  He finished 6th in the 1980 NL Rookie of the Year Award voting.  Reardon won the World Series with the Twins in 1987.  His 367 saves rank 10th all-time.

I mailed to Reardon on August 29 and got the cards back on September 29, for a 31-day TAT.
