Two TTM Successes From Dickie Thon
Finally, I got a message from PastPros that Dickie had never received my 87 Topps, and would sign and send me one of his own. THEN they message me again saying he didn't have any 87s, but he would send me something else. I got this 1984 Fleer All Star card. In the email, PastPros told me to re-send an 87, and Thon would sign that for me, as well. So, I did, and got that signed card back in about a week.
Thon (b. 1958) played in the majors from 1979 to 1993 for the Angels, Astros, Padres, Phillies, Rangers and Brewers. He had 1,176 hits, 71 home runs and a .264 batting average. He was an All Star in 1983. He was a Silver Slugger and finished 7th in the NL MVP voting that season, as well.
I originally sent to Thon on November 6, 2018, and got the 84 Fleer back on September 30, for a 328-day TAT. I sent the second 87 Topps on September 28, and got the signed card back on October 5, for a 7-day TAT.
