TTM Success - Richard Dotson

I added another 1987 Topps to my album, and also took a card out of my old Charlotte Knights team set with this TTM success from Richard Dotson.

I had picked up this 2014 Charlotte Knights team set in a gift package that I won at a charity auction in December.  It consisted of a bunch of baseball stuff, including the team set.  I have gotten a couple cards from it signed, and this Dotson is the latest one.
The 87 also turned out really well.  He doesn't have much of an auto, but it looks good on this card.

Dotson (b. 1959) played in the majors from 1979 to 1990 for the White Sox, Yankees and Royals.  He had a career record of 111-113 with 973 strike outs and a 4.23 ERA.  He was a 20-game winner in 1983, and an All Star in 1984.  His only time finishing with Cy Young (4th) and MVP (20th) votes was in 1983.

I mailed to Dotson on April 1 and got the cards back on May 18, for a 47-day TAT.
