TTM Success - Julio Franco

I was really excited when I saw that there was going to be a private signing with Julio Franco.  I needed him for my 1987 Topps set, so I jumped at it.  The card turned out great.

Franco (b. 1958) played in the majors from 1982 to 1994, 1996, 1997, 1999 and 2001 to 2007 for the Phillies, Indians, Rangers, White Sox, Brewers, Devil Rays, Braves and Mets.  He had 2,586 hits, 173 home runs and a .298 batting average.  He was a three-time All Star (1989, 1990 and 1991) and his best finish in the MVP voting was 8th (1994, AL).  He was also a 5-time Silver Slugger Award winner.  He was the 1991 AL batting champion (.341).

I mailed to the private signing on December 22 and got the card back on January 22, for a 31-day TAT.  I paid a fee of $29.00.

Wowza. Julio charges $29 to sign cards? i guess it makes sense. He doesn't have many certified autographs out there.
