TTM Success - Terry Steinbach

Here is a TTM success that took a long time to get here.  It also took me a long time to send the cards, but I got around to it, and then waited.  I had some pretty cool cards of Terry Steinbach for the autograph album, like the above 1995 Score Summit Edition.  I remember these from when I opened packs as a kid, but a lot of them got trashed because they all stuck together.  This one was one of the few that actually survived that era, and will now be in my album.
I had these two horizontal cards to send.  Both of them look really cool.  I especially liked the 1994 Upper Deck Homefield Advantage card.  I had been wanting one of them for the album, and finally got this one in.
He doesn't have a 1987 Topps, but I did send his 1987 Topps Rookies card in.  I also added a couple mid-90s Topps to my album.

Steinbach (b. 1962) played in the majors from 1986 to 1999 for the A's and Twins.  He had 1,453 hits, 162 home runs and a .271 batting average.  He was an All Star 3 times (1988, 1989 and 1993) and won the World Series with the A's in 1989.  He finished 21st in the 1996 AL MVP voting.

I mailed to Steinbach on October 16, 2017, and got the cards back on April 19, for a 185-day TAT.  I paid his fee of $2/card.
