TTM Success - Tommy Herr

I have his autograph; it was among the first that I ever pulled from a pack.  However, I needed to get Tommy Herr's autograph via TTM so that I could, you guessed it, add it to my 1987 set.  Herr signs multiples, so I added several other Topps issues to the request, and came away very happy.

The above 1990 Topps looked really nice, once it was signed.
I also asked him to sign the 1984 and 1988 to go along with the 87.

Herr (b. 1956) played in the majors from 1979 to 1991 for the Cardinals, Twins, PhilliesMets and Giants.  He had 1,450 hits, 28 home runs and a .271 batting average.  He was an All Star in 1985, the same season he had his best MVP finish (5th).  He won the World Series with the Cardinals in 1982.

I mailed to Herr on October 22 and got the cards back on October 30, for an 8-day TAT.
