TTM Success - Kris Medlen

Here is a Spring Training TTM success that I was happy to see come back.  I had this 2014 Bowman silver paper parallel of Kris Medlen that I wanted to add to my album, so I sent to him at Spring Training.  He ended up being released, so it was good that I sent when I did.
 I also added a few recent Topps issues that needed representation in the albums.  This 2009 Topps turned out really well.
I also liked this 2011 Topps, especially with it being a horizontal card.

Medlen (b. 1985) played in the majors from 2009 to 2013, 2015, 2016 and 2018 for the Braves, Royals and Diamondbacks.  He had a career record of 41-26 with 496 strike outs and a 3.33 ERA.  He finished 20th in the 2012 NL MVP voting when he went 10-1 with a 1.57 ERA across 50 games.

I mailed to Medlen on February 10 and got the cards back on April 5, for a 54-day TAT.
