TTM Success - George Bell

I added another tough name to my 1987 Topps set when I sent to a private signing for George Bell.  I had three cards in the set that I needed to get signed by him, and was able to get them done.
Now, I need Willie Upshaw to sign the Blue Jays leaders card and I will be good to go!

Bell (b. 1959) played in the majors in 1981 and from 1983 to 1993 for the Blue Jays and White Sox.  He had 1,702 hits, 265 home runs and a .278 batting average.  He was an All Star three times (1987, 1990 and 1991).  He received MVP votes in 6 seasons, culminating with a win in 1987 (AL).  He was also a three-time Silver Slugger Award winner.  He appeared on the 1999 Hall of Fame ballot, but received only 1.2% of the vote.

I mailed to the signing on October 15 and got the cards back on November 12, for a 28-day TAT.  I paid a fee of $20/card.
