TTM Success - Bill Scherrer

The last TTM success to come in during 2017 was this success from Bill Scherrer.  The cards that I sent turned out really nice.  I realized later on that I had an Orioles minor league card of him, but I was too late to include that one.  Still, the cards look great.
I was able to add another 1987 Topps to the album with this success.  At the close of the year, I have 110 signed cards from that set.
I also had to add a non-Topps card in this 1986 Donruss.  I always liked this design, and had one in my pile of Scherrer cards, so it made its way into the envelope.

Scherrer (b. 1958) played in the majors from 1982 to 1988 for the Reds, Tigers, Orioles and Phillies.  He had a career record of 8-10 with 207 strike outs and a 4.08 ERA.  He won the World Series with the 1984 Tigers.

I mailed to Scherrer on October 9 and got the cards back on December 23, for a 75-day TAT.

I close out the year with 410 TTM requests mailed and 315 successes.  I also received 27 from 2016 for a total of 342.  Of the 410 that I mailed, I had 13 failures, so that leaves 82 from 2017 that are still pending.  Maybe they'll come in sometime this year.
