TTM Success - Mookie Wilson

Another private signing helped me add another card to my 1987 set with this success from former Mets World Series hero, Mookie Wilson.  He had the hit that went through Bill Buckner's legs and swayed the momentum of the series toward the Mets back in 1986.

Wilson (b. 1956) played in the majors from 1980 to 1991 for the Mets and Blue Jays.  He had 1,397 hits, 67 home runs and a .274 batting average.  He finished 25th in the 1989 AL MVP voting, despite splitting time between the Mets and Blue Jays that season.  He won the World Series with the Mets in 1986.

I mailed to the private signing on February 23 and got the card back on April 2, for a 38-day TAT.
