TTM Success - Larry McWilliams

When I sent this card off, I wasn't working on my 1987 Topps set, so I was a little disappointed that I sent this 1984 Topps.  It took me so long to get it in, I went ahead and bought a signed 87 recently.

McWilliams (b. 1954) played in the majors from 1978 to 1990 for the Braves, Pirates, Cardinals, Phillies and Royals.  He had a career record of 78-90 with 940 strike outs and a 3.99 ERA.  He finished 5th in the 1983 NL Cy Young Award voting, the only time he received votes.

I mailed to McWilliams on March 5, 2016, and the card came back on January 22, 2019 for a 1,053-day TAT.  This is why I went ahead and bought a signed 1987 Topps instead of sending to him again.
