TTM Success - Mickey Tettleton

Another private signing came up on SCN; this one of former Oriole, Mickey Tettleton.  I had bought his 87 Topps already, so I went with a 1991 Crown Orioles, and the 1994 Leaf Medalists for the cards I would send.
I noticed after I paid for the signing and sent my cards that I missed sending the A's Leaders card from the 87 set.  I also missed it when I sent to Carney Lansford.  I really screwed up on that one.  I'll have to hope that those two do signings again, and maybe I can finish that card.

I was happy with this 94 medalists card though.  All I need now is to catch Chris Hoiles.  I hope he is at Fan Fest, soon.

Tettleton (b. 1960) played in the majors from 1984 to 1997 for the A's, Orioles, Tigers and Rangers.  He had 1,132 hits, 245 home runs and a .241 batting average.  He was an All Star in 1989 and 1994 and a Silver Slugger Award winner in 1989, 1991 and 1992.

I mailed to the signing on July 24 and got the cards back on August 30, for a 37-day TAT.  I paid a fee of $15/card.
