TTM Success - Lonnie Smith

I used PastPros again and knocked another name off of my 1987 checklist.  I also went ahead and added this 1995 Score, which shows Lonnie Smith as an Oriole.  I always loved the 1995 Score set, and would have built it, if my base cards I had hadn't all been stuck together.  Oh well, this one survived, and is now safe in my album.
Here is the 1987 Topps that I needed, which turned out well.

Smith (b. 1955) played in the majors from 1978 to 1994 for the Phillies, Cardinals, Royals, Braves, Pirates and Orioles.  He had 1,488 hits, 98 home runs and a .288 bating average.  He was an All Star in 1982.  His best finish in the MVP voting was also 1982 (NL), when he finished second to Dale Murphy.  He won the World Series with the Phillies in 1980, with the Cardinals in 1982 and with the Royals in 1985.

I mailed to Smith on September 20 and got the cards back on September 28, for an 8-day TAT.  I paid a fee of $5/card plus the $2 PastPros fee.
