TTM Success - Ty Griffin

This was a nice TTM success that was facilitated by my randomly finding a card and checking to see if the player signed TTM.
The card was this 1989 Topps Ty Griffin, and of course, he was an active signer.  The cards came out nicely, and I ended up with an extra 1989 that I sent on to my buddy Max, since he is a Cubs fan.

Griffin (b. 1967) was a first round pick (9th overall) by the Cubs in the 1988 June Amateur Draft out of Georgia Tech.  He played in the minors for 5 seasons and the Independent League for another 4 seasons.  In all, he had 723 hits, 82 home runs and a .257 batting average.

I mailed to Griffin on January 7 and got the cards back on January 22, for a 15-day TAT.
