TTM Success - Mariano Duncan

This TTM success from Mariano Duncan turned out really well.  I always enjoy a good Donruss Studio card, and this one looks great.  That was always a nice set to see when it came out, and I bet Panini would sell a few cards if they resurrected it.  Even if it was the players in suits and all, since Panini doesn't have licensing.
This 1987 Topps for the set turned out great.  Duncan has an awesome signature, and it was just about perfect on this card.

Duncan (b. 1963) played in the majors from 1985 to 1987 and 1989 to 1997 for the Dodgers, Reds, Phillies, Yankees and Blue Jays.  He had 1,247 hits, 87 home runs and a .267 batting average.  He finished 3rd in the 1985 NL Rookie of the Year voting and was an All Star in 1994.  He also finished 23rd in the 1985 NL MVP voting.

Duncan went to three World Series (1990, 1993 and 1996) and won two of them (1990 with the Reds and 1996 with the Yankees).

I mailed to Duncan on April 9 and got the cards back on April 19, for a 10-day TAT.  I sent to him via the West Michigan Whitecaps.
