TTM Success - Gary Matthews

I answered another private signing with this success from Gary Matthews on a 1987 Topps for the set.  I wasn't sure how I would get Matthews, since he didn't really sign a whole lot.  Luckily, I saw the signing and got this done.

Matthews (b. 1950) played in the majors from 1972 to 1987 for the Giants, Braves, Phillies, Cubs and Mariners.  He had 2,011 hits, 234 home runs and a .281 batting average.  He was the 1973 NL Rookie of the Year, was an All Star in 1975 and finished a career best 5th in the MVP (NL) voting in 1984.

I mailed for the private signing on May 29 and got the card back on June 19 for a 21-day TAT.  I paid a fee of $15.00.
