TTM Success - Lance Niekro
The above 2006 Upper Deck looks really cool. I don't have much at all from this set, and I am glad that I sent this one in.
Of course, I had to get a Topps base card in there, and 2006 Topps is one set that I have very little of, as far as bulk cards are concerned. I had a box of them that turned over and fell out of my truck in my move, and the cards ended up in the gutter just after a rainstorm. Needless to say, most of the cards were ruined.
Niekro (b. 1979) is the son of the late Joe Niekro and the nephew of Hall of Famer, Phil Niekro. He played in the majors from 2003 and 2005 to 2007 for the Giants. He had 123 hits, 17 home runs and a .246 batting average.
I mailed to Niekro on September 30 and got the cards back on October 8, for an 8-day TAT.
