TTM Success - Mike Easler

Here is another TTM success that took me a long time to send, and a long time to post.  I sat on my Mike Easler cards for a while, just because I seemed to have other guys ahead of him all of the time.  I finally got around to getting his cards out, and I also knocked a card off of my 1987 Topps checklist.  The above 1985 Topps really turned out nice, I think.
I also got Easler on a 1980, 1986 and 1987, and they all look great.

Easler (b. 1950) played in the majors from 1973 to 1977 and 1979 to 1987 for the Astros, Angels, Pirates, Red Sox, Yankees and Phillies.  He had 1,078 hits, 118 home runs and a .293 batting average.  He was an All Star in 1981.  His best (and only) finish in the MVP voting was 20th in 1980 (NL).  He won the World Series with the Pirates in 1979.

I mailed to Easler on March 5 and got the cards back on March 15, for a 10-day TAT.
