TTM Success - Paul Wilson

I had to wait a long, long time, but I was able to finally add a 1996 Pinnacle Aficionado to my autograph album.  This is one of my all-time favorite sets, and appears to be pretty difficult to find.  I had this card since probably 1996, then thought it might be lost forever.
I finally received it, and these cards back signed from Paul Wilson, after waiting a couple years.  The cards I sent were all really cool, and he signed them with a red Sharpie.

Wilson (b. 1973) played in the majors in 1996 and from 2000 to 2005 for the Mets, Devil Rays and Reds.  He had a career record of 40-58 with 619 strike outs and a 4.86 ERA.  He was the #1 overall pick in the 1994 June Amateur Draft by the Mets out of Florida State University.

I mailed to Wilson on May 6, 2016 and got the cards back on August 24, 2019, for a 1,205-day TAT.
