TTM Success - Mark Kotsay

Amidst all of the TTM returns I have gotten lately from players with cards from the 70s and 80s was this return from Mark Kotsay.  I had some nice early-to-mid 2000s cards of Kotsay, and it was a nice change to get those in.

The above 1999 Topps Gold Label really looks great, and scanned really well.  I found this at my LCS in one of the boxes in the back of the shop.
I added a few Topps cards that were needed in the album, like the above 2006 Topps.  This was a nice set, which I had a bunch of cards, but sold off all of my extras a long time ago.
I also had Topps cards from 2007 and 2012 for this return, as well as a 2000 Topps Chrome and a 2002 Upper Deck (89 design).

Kotsay (b. 1975) played in the majors from 1997 to 2013 for the Marlins, Padres, A's, Braves, Red Sox, White Sox and Brewers.  He had 1,784 hits, 127 home runs and a .276 batting average.  He finished 14th in the 2004 AL MVP voting. 

I mailed to Kotsay via the Oakland A's on May 8 and got the cards back on September 29, for a 144-day TAT.
