Another TTM Success From Steve Carlton

I'm slowly knocking off the Hall of Famers who charge fees for TTM autos for my 1987 set.  Carlton charges $35/card, so it was a little high, but I wanted to cross this card off of my set needs.

Carlton (b. 1944) played in the majors from 1965 to 1988 for the Cardinals, Phillies, Giants, White Sox, Indians and Twins.  He had a 329-244 record, 4,136 strike outs and a 3.22 ERA.  He won 20 or more games six times in his career.  He won the Cy Young Award four times (1972, 1977, 1980 and 1982).  His best MVP finish was 5th (3 times).  He won the World Series with the Cardinals in 1967 and the Phillies in 1980.  He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1994 when he was names on 95.6% of the ballot (first ballot).

I mailed to Carlton on April 25 and got the card back on June 11, for a 47-day TAT.  I paid a fee of $35/card.
