TTM Success - Carney Lansford

Another private signing landed me another tough auto for my 1987 set with this success from Carney Lansford.  The auto turned out really well, but I completely missed that he was on the A's team card, so I'll have to send that (which is already signed by LaRussa) if another signing comes down the line.

Lansford (b. 1957) played in the majors from 1978 to 1992 for the Angels, Red Sox and A's.  He had 2,074 hits, 151 home runs and a .290 batting average.  He was the AL batting champion in 1981 with a .336 average, a season where he had his best MVP finish (6th) and was a Silver Slugger.  He was an All Star in 1988 and he won the World Series with the A's in 1989. 

I mailed to the private signing on September 5 and got the card back on October 5, for a 30-day TAT.  I paid a fee of $9.00.
