TTM Success - Ron Guidry

A private signing on SCN got me this 1987 Topps signed by Ron Guidry.  The card turned out really well, and wasn't too crazy expensive.

Guidry (b. 1950) played in the majors from 1975 to 1988 for the Yankees.  He had a career record of 170-91 with 1,778 strike outs and a 3.29 ERA.  He was the 1978 AL Cy Youn Award winner and a 4-time All Star (1978, 1979, 1982 and 1983).  He finished 2nd in the 1978 AL MVP Award voting.  He won the World Series with the Yankees in 1977 and 1978.  He won 21 or more games three times in his career (1978 - 25; 1983 - 21; and 1985 - 22).  He appeared on 9 Hall of Fame ballots between 1994 and 2002, but received a high of only 8.8% of the vote.

I mailed to the private signing on October 16 and got the card back on November 1, for a 16-day TAT.  I paid a fee of $35.00.
