TTM Success - Ron Cey

I sat on my Ron Cey cards for a long time, mainly because I thought I had seen that he charged a fee.  I looked again recently and saw that he would sign up to 2 cards for free, so I went ahead and sent off the two 1987 Topps cards that he is on.
I was disappointed when this one came back smudged, since I had already gotten it signed in person by Steve Trout at the National.  I'm going to keep it as is, though, and not try to replace it.

Cey (b. 1948) played in the majors from 1971 to 1987 for the Dodgers, Cubs and A's.  He had 1,868 hits, 316 home runs and a .261 batting average.  He was an All Star six seasons in a row from 1974 to 1979 and finished as high as 8th for the NL MVP Award (1977).  He won the World Series with the Dodgers in 1981.

Cey appeared on the 1993 Hall of Fame ballot, but received only 1.9% of the vote.

I mailed to Cey on September 25 and got the cards back on October 5, for a 10-day TAT.
