TTM Success - Bob Patterson

I added some nice junk wax cards to my autograph album when I got this TTM success from former pitcher, Bob Patterson.

I have a huge box of 1993 Fleer that I rarely get into, since it is buried at the bottom of my stack of 5,000-count boxes.  I was able to pull this Patterson and include it in my TTM request.  The card turned out really well.
Patterson has a good many Topps issues, so I sent cards from 1988, 1991, 1992 and 1993.  I really like the 1988.  I have 1993s coming out of my ears, so I was glad to get one of them out and signed.
Finally, I sent this 1996 Fleer.  These have the matte finish on the cards.  They are a pain to leaf through, but they look really cool when signed.

Patterson (b. 1959) is an ECU alum and played in the majors from 1985 to 1987 and 1989 to 1998 for the Padres, Pirates, Rangers, Angels and Cubs.  He had a career record of 39-40 with 483 strike outs and a 4.08 ERA.

I mauled to Patterson on September 23 and got the cards back on October 21, for a 28-day TAT.
