TTM Success - Toby Harrah

The last TTM waiting on my desk was from Toby Harrah.  I am now caught up (for now, at least) on TTM posts.  I was really happy to add a new 1987 Topps to the autograph album with this success.
I had a ton of Harrah's cards to choose from, and I feel like I chose some really good ones.  This 1981 Topps might be my favorite.
I sent him 7 cards, but he kept one (a 1986 Topps Team Leaders card).  All of the cards turned out really nice, and pushed up the numbers on some 1980s sets.

Harrah (b. 1948) played in the majors from 1969 and 1971 to 1986 for the Senators, Rangers, Indians and Yankees.  He had 1,954 hits, 195 home runs and a .264 batting average.  He was an All Star four times (1972, 1975, 1976 and 1982) and finished a best of 15th in the AL MVP voting (1975).

He appeared on the 1992 Hall of Fame ballot and received 0.2% of the vote.

I mailed to Harrah on February 13 and got the cards back yesterday (12/19) for a 309-day TAT.
