TTM Success - Rick Honeycutt

While this autograph request was out to Rick Honeycutt, I ended up getting an 87 Topps for my set.  This one finally came in, so I will take a look at the one I had, and see if this one looks any better.

I had sent to Dodgers Spring Training to try to get Honeycutt on my cards, and they finally did come back.  The above 1990 Topps turned out really well.  I didn't realize how off-centered my card was, but it still looks nice.
Here is the 87, along with a 1992.  Both look sharp.

Honeycutt (b. 1954) played in the majors from 1977 to 1997 for the Mariners, Rangers, Dodgers, A's, Yankees and Cardinals.  He had a career record of 109-143, with 1,038 strike outs and a 3.72 ERA.  He was an All Star in 1980 and 1983, and won the World Series with the A's in 1989.  He appeared on the 2003 Hall of Fame ballot, and received 0.4% of the vote.

I mailed to Honeycutt on February 5 and got the cards back on September 10, for a 217-day TAT.
